Reviews

Eye-opening ... [Minter is] an excellent guide to this sprawling and bewildering trade. Wall Street Journal Superbly researched. Financial Times Minter's skillful compilation of trade statistics in and of itself would make Junkyard Planet a strong book. But what tips it into greatness is the confident, sympathetic voice in which he narrates his peripatetic odyssey through the world's junkyards. Los Angeles Review of Books A satisfying investigation-cum-travelogue. Mother Jones Fascinating. Atlantic Cities Lively and entertaining ... Junkyard Planet is a book for anyone interested in the environment, the economics of recycling, or a thoughtful look at the consumption we take for granted. Brooklyn Bugle
