Reviews

"Fascinating, readable, and terrifying in equal measure." --Mark Lynas, author of Six Degrees

"An important book and a real page-turner . . . showing us how we can all 'act where we can. --Jenny Bates, Friends of the Earth clean air campaigner

"Adeptly and engagingly weaves the history, science, and politics of a global crisis. A timely intervention for the benefit of personal and planetary health." --Simon L. Lewis, co-author of The Human Planet

"I only wish Fuller had written this book twenty years ago. The scandal of how we have been poisoned for greed shames governments and companies. His knowledge and insights are remarkable." --John Vidal, former environment editor, The Guardian

"Fuller deftly lays out a compelling and disturbing history of air pollution, and the harm it causes. A must-read for anyone intrigued by what's in the air they breathe, and concerned about the damage it might lead to." --Andrew D. Maynard, director of the Risk Innovation Lab at the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at Arizona State University

"In this book, [Fuller] tells the stories of the scientists and researchers who have paved the way towards our understanding of pollution, shows its effects, and makes a passionate case for fighting back."--LitHub
