'No one tells it better than Tim Flannery.' * David Suzuki * 'Flannery synthesises a vast range of scientific studies and a decent selection of historical and cultural writings, leavening those with his own forceful ideas.' * New York Times Book Review * 'Flannery is a writer who sneezes at political correctness and charges into the densely land-mined territory of the biological determinants of human behaviour.' * Washington Post * 'Flannery is a master storyteller, with an eye for the revealing detail.' * Australian Book Review * 'This man is a national treasure, and we should heed his every word.' * Sunday Telegraph *
