"A detail-rich chronicle. The miles fly by."-- "The Washington Post (Praise for A HOLE IN THE WIND)"
"At the end of a high-level career in climate science, David Goodrich cycled from Delaware to Oregon looking for a "hole in the wind"--a human future in the unrelenting march of climate change."-- "Nature (Praise for A HOLE IN THE WIND)"
"The text rolls along as easily as his heavily-laden bike must have on those welcome downhill stretches. For a read that engages, entertains, and also educates, I can't recommend anything better than A Hole in the Wind."-- "The Daily Local (Praise for A HOLE IN THE WIND)"
"This cyclist's view of how things really are effectively cuts across head-butting arguments about global warming. A compelling narrative enlivened as much by the author's encounters on the road as by his skillful unfolding of scientific knowledge."-- "Kirkus Reviews (Praise for A HOLE IN THE WIND)"
"Entertaining and instructive, Goodrich's travelogue showcases one man's heroic efforts to confront this century's greatest environmental crisis."-- "Booklist (Praise for A HOLE IN THE WIND)"
"A gentlemanly excursion through dirty oil sites that features a caustic, urgent message."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Goodrich is a sure-footed, amiable guide to the science behind climate change.-- "Publishers Weekly"
