Reviews

"[Kolbert] says people think that to prevent the sixth extinction they need to care more and make sacrifices, but 'It doesn't much matter if people care or don't care. What matters is that people change the world.' After reading her lively, entertaining, and very accessible book, young readers will be inspired to try." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Highly expressive and vividly detailed writing conveys the tragedy that humanity is bringing on itself. . . Essential for science discussions on mass extinctions to challenge advanced middle grade readers."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"The narrative of this abridged version contains each of the original book's 13 chapters and is written with specificity and wit. . . In addition to clearly synthesizing a large amount of research, this book's virtue lies in the emotional gut punch it delivers. . .A wide-ranging, urgent, and emotionally effective call to action. "--Kirkus
