“Wright's book is an academic study that is nonetheless deeply moving, clearly written, and suitable for general readers. It is essential reading for anyone wishing to learn about how "humans are inextricably connected to the chain of life on this planet. " Tackling global warming rests on us recognizing this deceptively simple fact. ” Publisher’s Weekly
