There’s a review of “Ten Billion” by Stephen Emmott, published by Vintage
(Paperback, 128 pages) at
“A frightening read, and a necessary one. Basically, we’re all in serious trouble as the global population increases exponentially and resources and the environment are destroyed. Short and direct and pretty damn scary.”
The review is by Liz Sullivan, who sells real estate in Austin, Texas. She gives it four stars (out of five), two more than “A Farewell to Arms”, and one less than “To the Lighthouse”. (I’m with you there Liz).
The expected publication date is September 10th 2013. Liz read it in February 2013. What’s going on?
