"a paradigm shifting book with tremendous depth and scope [...] a journey that ranges from the anthropological story of modern humans from paleo times, to impressive cross-sections of human history, to an overview of what seems to be all major conflicts in the past few decades. [...] guarantee to galvanize even the most eco-saavy reader's perspective on this topic"

"an important book [...] on a topic more people should pay attention to [...] This is a fascinating thought-provoking book which I encourage you to read."

"an interesting book [...] What's there is good, but Benno just needs to write more of it. A book on such an important topic could run to several volumes, if you really wanted."
