"We're living in an aha moment. Take 250 years of human ingenuity. Add abundant fossil fuels. The result: a population and lifestyle never seen before. The downsides weren't visible for centuries, but now they are. Suddenly everything needs rethinking - suburbs, cars, fast food, cheap prices. It's a changed world. This book explains it. Using politics, psychology, and history for attitude, Eyes Wide Open shows how to see the principles driving events and attitudes, from vested interests to denial to big-country syndrome. Here's the briefing you need to comprehend the twenty-first century"--Page [4] of cover.

"Eyes Wide Open" is phenomenal. Read it! Packed with reliable sources and timely information about climate change, this book will open your eyes and make you think about what's going on in our world. Not only that; it also provides insight on how to "decode" the media about often politicized issues, and how to form your own opinions (and contemplate solutions) based on real, reliable information. Even though it's non-fiction, it's super readable and you won't be able to put it down. It certainly inspired to me to think more critically about global warming, our environment, and the impact that our everyday choices have on our future.
