    very accessible and pratical analysis

    Simple and tackling the main factors, including the least obvious one for the public. The book shows effective altruism applied to climate change.

    Bill at his best, the narration a bit less so

    Comprehensive, yet concise, Bill gates laying out his knowledge, connections and solutions at his best. If you thought you understood climate change and what is to be done about it, this book will show you you still had plenty to learn.

    I really wish Bill had read the whole book himself though. He reads the intro and does a great job. The main narrator's strong American accent and style is jarring and suits neither bill's writing nor his measured speaking style. At times i genuinely expected the narrator to interject with a "Wow man, ain't that crazy?!" Yes, climate change is dramatic but that doesn't mean you have to read it in a dramatic way. Other than that, the narration is clear and understandable.

    Interesting to know facts and figures

    This book is a review of climate change, which is a very large topic. It shares facts, lists solutions, their maturity and point out some actions to perform in the near future.
    I however admit I expected a bit more on the storyline, that is, with that many facts and figures it is not always obvious to get the storyline, it's consistency. Maybe the fact that I listened every morning in the underground does not help

    Fantastically pragmatic and a-political

    What an exceptional, pragmatic, a-political and accessible book about how to correct our trajectory away from a climate disaster. Great analysis, that gives you good rules of thumb without overwhelming you with confusing details. Linking that directly to actions and outcomes so readers can walk away empowered to make a difference and have some hope.

    Not as good as expected

    It might be related to my professional background as engineer, but there was not a lot new in that book. A lot of things are explained who people from a technical background would know, e.g. what is a Watt and what is then a Giga Watt....
    I do understand that this book is written to make that maximum of people aware of the situation we are facing. For that it is surely very good. For me, seeking new impulses for my own profession, it was rather not the one.

    1a wunderbar

    sehr zu empfehlen für alle, die den Klimawandel weder leugnen, noch der meinung sind, man müsse das system überwinden, um diesen zu verhindern. Stattdessen wird hier ein nachvollziehbarer, umfänglicher und mit unserer westlichen Gesellschaft vereinbarer lösungsansatz präsentiert, der völlig ohne moralapostel oder verbotsorgien auskommt. im Vordergrund steht hingegen die praktikabilität und effizienz von Maßnahmen.

    Perfect and not polarizing!

    It is the first time I found this really complex topic discussed from many angels without polarizing or taking extrem position. The Autor explains the hough size of the problem, while keeping a optimistic view.
    I can recommend the book to everyone. You don't need a university degree in science to enjoy it.

    Informative and inspiring

    It's a great book that looks at climate change in an optimistic, solution oriented, holistic, realistic and pro-human way. It's both informative and motivating.
