Overview

An Inconvenient Truth, Gore's groundbreaking battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling Earth in the Balance, will be published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name that will be seen in theaters across the country in May. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes -- and a leading expert -- brings together leading-edge research from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness -- and with humor, too -- that the fact of global warming is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book, written in an accessible, entertaining style, will open the eyes of even the most skeptical.

Editorial Reviews

Michiko Kakutani
… as a user-friendly introduction to global warming and a succinct summary of many of the central arguments laid out in those other volumes, An Inconvenient Truth is lucid, harrowing and bluntly effective.
— The New York Times
Warren Bass
Al Gore may have missed his calling: He would have made a fine science writer. The former vice president's new book -- a movie tie-in entitled An Inconvenient Truth, like the film hitting screens in New York and Los Angeles this week -- shows an impressive talent for explanatory journalism. Based on a slide show that Gore has been perfecting on his Mac laptop for years, this handsome volume doesn't pack quite the same punch as the celluloid version, but it's still very effective: a book on global warming that's downright chilling.
— The Washington Post
