Neil's picture

Mark O'Connell is an award winning Irish journalist, who travels the world (including to New Zealand) to report on those who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Among those he meets are environmentalists, billionaires and right wing conspiracists. He is a very funny writer, lucid and articulate, and he explores this somewhat dark territory with restraint and good humour. A short, extremely entertaining and eye opening book.
