Product description

Review

A superb account of the deadly struggle between humanity and what may prove the only life-bearing planet within ten light years, written in a brilliantly sardonic and conversational style -- E. O. Wilson

Hope Jahren is an awesome writer and scientist. Her new book, The Story of More, is captivating and compelling. She urges readers to be courageous dealing with global environmental changes and human population growth

Hope Jahren asks the central question of our time: how can we learn to live on a finite planet? The Story of More is thoughtful, informative and - above all - essential

A concise and personal yet universally applicable examination of a problem that affects everyone on planet Earth . . . [Jahren] doesn't use scare tactics or shrill warnings . . . She clearly shows how the amount of waste created by the privileged could provide plenty for those less privileged ― Kirkus Reviews

Hope Jahren's compelling book uses statistics brilliantly to provoke self-examination. In sections on 'Life', 'Food', 'Energy' and 'Earth', it illuminates subjects from population growth to melting glaciers ― Nature
