I read part of this book, then picked up the audiobook and tried that for a while. Both are long-winded and dragged on with tons of info and exhortations for change. The part on why global climate change needs to be addressed and ways to modify public policy were good, but some of the information suffered from lack of knowledge of the rapid decrease in commodity prices and global trade that started in 2008 from inflated highs to recession/depression levels 6 months later. He refers to many news articles that were published just prior to the book, so not all the info was super-out of date - for instance he does mention what people could do to address possible falling energy prices on alternative energy and efficiency. Worth reading some chapters and speed reading other sections that may now be less applicable. The best part of this book was the many personal experiences he details from visiting China, Mexico, and other places around the world and discussing local issues and policies.
