We seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them.
"Klein is a brave and passionate writer who always deserves to be heard, and this is a powerful and urgent book." (
"This is a conversation that needs to happen on a large scale, and on a local scale, and on a personal scale, very soon." (Margret Atwood)

Naomi Klein's best book so far.
Brilliant, scary, honest.
I wasn't overly fond of Liza Ross's narration. Naomi Klein I feel should have voiced her own book.
This book puts together all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, but I got no comfort in realising that my thoughts and observations of the world were shared by so many other people. Naomi Klein pulls away the curtain to reveal a world of power, greed and corruption and what is our role in that world? We are pawns, consumers and victims, yet the earth still turns and we still go on living our lives like they really matter. It is hard to read this book and not get angry, angry at the powerful elitist corporations and angry at humanity for doing nothing about the destruction of our world.
Sobering, frightening and essential reading for those of us who find no comfort in burying our heads in the sand. Defy the will of the herd, awaken and fight for your planet!
