Reviews

This is the book our children's children will thank us for reading * The Edge, U2 *
Beautiful to read, heartfelt and persuasive The Good Ancestor is one of those landmark books with the power to shift a mindset. One turns the pages feeling a growing compulsion for change. Krznaric's clarion call for long-term thinking makes him an ancestor all future generations can be proud of * Isabella Tree, author of Wilding *
It deserves to be widely read - by policy makers, and indeed by all citizens who care about the prospects for their children and grandchildren * Professor Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal *
A great antidote to the short-term thinking that comes easily to us all. If you want to be a good ancestor, start by reading this book * Nigel Warburton, author of A Little History of Philosophy *
Clear-sighted and inspiring - a must-read for anyone who's looking for the good news * Brian Eno *
