Reviews

"There is no other correspondent like Bill Weir, and there's certainly no other book like this one. It's moving, funny, frank, well-researched, beautifully written, and looks at climate change in a way I've never seen before."
--Anderson Cooper, CNN anchor, 60 Minutes correspondent, and New York Times-bestselling author

"Bill Weir provides insightful, alarming, but ultimately hopeful coverage of the climate crisis. His new book is a gorgeous love letter to his son but also to Earth and humanity. Read this for insight, solutions, and an exhilarating journey."
--Jake Tapper, CNN anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent, and New York Times-bestselling author

"Bill Weir is one of America's great storytellers. In this timely debut, he takes us around the world and gives us a front-row seat to one of the world's most pressing issues: climate change. Life as We Know It (Can Be) gives us hope--and some real solutions--to build a more promising future."
--Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Blue Zones books

"Life as We Know It (Can Be) is a clear-eyed, heartfelt argument against despair. It is also a kind of instruction manual for how to live in an age of so much loss. Weir risks writing both rigorously and personally, as a climate journalist and as a father. The result is sobering and inspiring."
--Jonathan Safran Foer, New York Times-bestselling author
