'A concise and clever book. For those that think they know about Climate Change it's a short and timely reminder of the science behind it (complete with compelling information to counter climate deniers). For people that aren't up with the science, or are sceptical of the whole 'Global Warming' lark, it's an accessible and convincing introduction to the subject.' Amazon Customer 5-star review
