Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The most important aspect of this series of essays is that in a single volume it is possible to grasp a correct understanding of what has been and continues to be a very complex yet important subject. Understanding the Gaian theory is not a solution to the crisis of global warming, but it is a shortcut to comprehending the depth and seriousness of our man-made environmental crisis.

Summing Up: Essential." P. K. Strother Choice
