Bill McKibben's best books

Activist and writer Bill McKibben is the award-winning author of The End of Nature and The Age of Missing Information. His new book, Eaarth, argues that our planet already has been irrevocably remade by human activity.

He named his six favorite books for The Week magazine. One title on the list:
Plan B by Lester Brown

In case you’ve ever wondered if civilization can keep going on its present course, this book by our most prominent eco-statistician will prove that the answer is no—and that, instead, there’s a wealth of real possibilities for change to a more sustainable and more human course.
Read about another book on McKibben's list.
