Comments from BDS Reviewers:

"An easy, interesting and quick read. The book is well organised and the author's plan is clear."

"I was pleased to read that Gates is calling for the work and money to come from the 'rich countries', those who have created the problem."

"I think everyone should read this book and discuss its contents and perspectives. Whether they will choose to read it, is a different proposition."

"Clearly written and easily read."

"Gates does not bog the narrative down with unnecessary technical detail."

"This is a good overall guide to the global complexity of working towards carbon zero."

"If you have a scientific mind, this book may seem a bit simplistic, but it's an excellent book for the average reader."
