"Lester Brown has produced another 'planetary survey' book that tells us how to get off the wrecking train we are on by courtesy of a dozen environmental assaults such as climate change. The better news (and there’s plenty) is that turning problems into opportunities generally puts money into our pockets." —Norman Myers, 21st Century School, University of Oxford on World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse
John Elkington reviewed Lester Brown's autobiography Breaking New Ground for the May/June issue of Resurgence and Ecologist. He writes, "I read the book cover-to-cover in a couple of sittings and learned an immense amount in the process, not just about Brown's extraordinary life and times but also about the mind-boggling spectrum of challenges he has taken on."
