    I Also Recommend:

    Pretty chill

    Easy read, but pretty informative and entertaining. Highly recommend it to people who enjoy winter and cold temperatures, obviously. Gives general history of cold events, like chemical air conditioners and info on frozen wooly mammoths, and some basics on winter ecology. As mentioned several times in this book, anyone who is interested in cold-weather life needs to read 'Winter World' by Bernd Heinrich.

    Insightful, entertaining and timely

    This book brings the northern climate and its effect on animals, plants, humans and history into the hands of the reader. A comprehensive look into what those of us in the north live with. History, geology, anthropology and storytelling bound together in a most readable and enjoyable story.

    COLD is a lyrical book

    Filled with arcane information, this lovely, lyrical book takes you all over the world and makes you feel the physical presence of each site. The author seems to know just about everything there is to know about COLD, from the scientific to the anecdotal, and he brings all of his knowledge to bear. He is also willing to share what seems like a lack of compassion or at least a lack of empathy as he tells you of his scientific observations of a friend losing the feeling in her hands...or telling you how he got a London taxi driver to be still.

    This is the kind of book you can open anywhere, and enjoy what's there. What you remember will be what you bring with you and how his verse relates to your thoughts.
