An audacious intellectual adventure . . . His thought experiment is so intellectually fascinating, so oddly playful, that it escapes categorizing and clich'233;s. . . . It sucks us in with a vision of what is, what has been, and what is yet to come. . . . It's a trumpet call that sounds from the other end of the universe and from inside us all."--Salon "An astonishing mass of reportage that envisions a world suddenly bereft of humans."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "A fascinating nonfiction eco-thriller . . . Weisman's gripping fantasy will make most readers hope that at least some of us can stick around long enough to see how it all turns out."--The New York Times Book Review "Alan Weisman has produced, if not a bible, at least a Book of Revelation."--Newsweek "The book boasts an amazingly imaginative conceit that manages to tap into underlying fears and subtly inspire us to consider our interaction with the planet."--The Washington Post "Extraordinarily farsighted . . . Beautiful and passionate."--The Boston Globe "Grandly entertaining."--Time "The World Without Usgradually reveals itself to be one of the most satisfying environmental books of recent memory, one devoid of self-righteousness, alarmism, or tiresome doomsaying."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "A refreshing, and oddly hopeful, look at the fate of the environment."--BusinessWeek "This book is the very DNA of hope."--The Globe and Mail(Toronto)
