"This is a much-needed testament and historical document from one of the great environmentalists of our time." -- Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor, Harvard University "This is the life story of a true American hero... as a scientist and public intellectual dedicated to the cause of sustainability Lester Brown is in a class by himself." -- David W. Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor, Oberlin College "At last one of the most inspiring and accomplished of environmental thought leaders tells his very own tale. A must read for anyone who cares about where we have come from and where we need to go for a sustainable future." -- Thomas E. Lovejoy, Biodiversity Chair, The Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, University Professor of Environmental Science and Policy, George Mason University "If you've ever thought, 'I'm just one person; what can one person do?' well, meet Lester Brown. Until now, Lester's work has been about the wider world, but here he allows us a look at how one person can achieve so much that is possible and positive. If you'd like directions to the high road where one person can drive change, Lester Brown's story is the road map to the on-ramp." -- Carl Safina, author of The View from Lazy Point "Having been a fan of Lester Brown's past work, I was anxious to read his personal memoir-and it didn't disappoint. Breaking New Ground is fascinating in that it delves deeply into who Lester Brown is, of course as an environmental leader and great thinker, but more importantly, as a human being. Just as he has in the past, Lester continues to inspire us with his brilliant thoughts and ideas, and in his memoir, he isn't afraid to also show us his heart." -- Ted Turner
