Publisher's Summary

We seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them.

©2014 Naomi Klein (P)2015 W F Howes Ltd

What the Critics Say

"Klein is a brave and passionate writer who always deserves to be heard, and this is a powerful and urgent book." (Observer)

"This is a conversation that needs to happen on a large scale, and on a local scale, and on a personal scale, very soon." (Margret Atwood)

    "Very Repetitive"

    I agree with the message of the book however I fell like the information could be much more succinct. Every new chapter I am left thinking that it sounds just like the last, making it difficult to maintain focus.

    Story
    "Important message ruined by narration"
    What made the experience of listening to This Changes Everything the most enjoyable?

    The content. Klein's carefully thought-through arguments and presentation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This question is inappropriate for this book. It is not something to enjoy, it is too terrifying.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Liza Ross’s performances?

    Absolutely not, I found this performance totally inappropriate. When I checked the other books that Liza Ross has narrated I was not surprised. I felt as if she was reading the material with a group of rather dim school children in mind.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me angry.


    Any additional comments?

    Please try to match the readers to the material more carefully.

    "Amazing"

    Life-changing work. Well researched. At the same time both global and highly personal. Constructive answers to neoliberal economic policy, with a focus on hope for the future founded on science-based solutions rather than dreams. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Naomi Klein's best book so far."
    If you could sum up This Changes Everything in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant, scary, honest.


    What does Liza Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I wasn't overly fond of Liza Ross's narration. Naomi Klein I feel should have voiced her own book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book puts together all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, but I got no comfort in realising that my thoughts and observations of the world were shared by so many other people. Naomi Klein pulls away the curtain to reveal a world of power, greed and corruption and what is our role in that world? We are pawns, consumers and victims, yet the earth still turns and we still go on living our lives like they really matter. It is hard to read this book and not get angry, angry at the powerful elitist corporations and angry at humanity for doing nothing about the destruction of our world.


    Any additional comments?

    Sobering, frightening and essential reading for those of us who find no comfort in burying our heads in the sand. Defy the will of the herd, awaken and fight for your planet!

    "forgetting something?"

    Mostly good - although very long for a message that needs to get to the masses. also, to write an entire book on climate change without mentioning one of the biggest contributors: animal agriculture, is a great shame.
    Still, I have been inspired to take action.

    A comprehensive and compelling case for the urgency of taking action on climate change in the face of vested interests and political apathy.

    "I was I admit finding the intense close arguments difficult to take in,this is therefore,for me a very good way of understandin"

    A very good reading from Audible.
    A very clever choice because of the density of text and the cogent arguments are more palatable when able to move around.

    Story
    "Keep your head in the tar sands"

    Informative if a little hard going at times. As you would expect the politics are of the left.

    I had very little knowledge of climate change and the politics around it preferring to ignore the subject, hoping it would just disappear. I found it eye opening and to be honest a little depressing but Naomi Klein's optimistic and practical ideas kept me going through to the end.

    production and narration good.

    Overall I can't say I found it easy listening but that's the point of the book. A wake up call for anyone afraid of the unknowns of climate change.

    Story
    "Head out of the sand moment"

    Well worth a listen brings into focus the importance of climate change and the need to leave the fossil fuels in the ground.

    While the changes needed in the current system are not a simple fix. There's plenty of working solutions highlighted in this book that if scaled up would reduce the need for fossil fuels.

    Quite early into the book Naomi acknowledges that she had spent quite a bit of time with her head in the sand when it came to the climate change challenge, this was also the moment when I did the same.
