Utterly brilliant - engaging, thrilling, disturbing, revelatory, explosive -- George Monbiot Absolutely, gloriously, heart-rendingly, heart-stoppingly glorious -- Manda Scott, author of the bestselling BOUDICCA series This book is brave, creative and utterly necessary for understanding what is happening to us psychologically as a result of climate and societal breakdown -- Joe Ryle, Director of the Four Day Week Campaign A brilliant, compassionate account of the intersection between climate change and mental health [...] deserves to be widely read, borrowed, shared and discussed by anyone who cares about the climate -- Ro Randall, founder member of the Climate Psychology Alliance Above all else, responding to climate emergency is a battle over our minds. Charlie Young had a natural entry point to this perspective through his own experience - and the consequences are radical. If we are able to wrestle and work with our psychology, we may be better able to relate to each other and planet of which we are part. The upshot could be a whole new way of being human. And Spinning Out is a gateway to that possibility -- Anthony Painter, Director of Policy at the Chartered Management Institute (CMI)
