"Depressing but important"
The narration of this book is somewhat overdone (overenthusiastic) and gets irritating after a while. I had to listen to anther audiobook in between to not get too put off. But what the book has to tell is important, even if it is not a happy story. Our politicians should be forced to read this book, as it is full of examples of short-sighted political decisions that will compromise the future of our children. But it is also full of good examples of where "normal" people have acted in a way to ensure a better future for all. This book should be put in the hands of all high school students, to ensure that the next generation does not repeat the short-sightedness of our generation. The world can still be saved. It is not too late, but we have to act much more decisively and much faster. The message to all good people is: you can do a lot of things to help the world to be thriving place place even in the future. The message to all less good people is: read and repent!
