What the community says about Collapse

    "Collapse is a good reminder of what will happen to our planet if we do not take actions in making the environment and nature better. In this book, the author highlights climate change, population growth and other issues we are currently facing. I would recommend this if you want to learn more about mother earth."

    "Super interesting read! It can be a little terrifying at times, but it remains hopeful at the end. Lots of good information and stories in here."

    "This book was really, really interesting. It provided lots of insight to me, and made me rethink some of the things society does."

    "This is an interesting and somewhat terrifying take on how climate change, population patterns and current events can combine to lead to a modern societal collapse. Identifying some of the current problems in the "civilized world," the author weaves an entirely plausible worst case scenario if ecological disaster is not prevented. "

    "A friend suggested that I check out the book Collapse as he knows that I really like non-fiction books. It started off pretty slow and never really got interesting to me. "

    "Sounds like we're doomed. He makes some interesting points about climate change and how the dominoes will fall to kill us all. Pretty gloomy book, really. Read at your own risk."

    "I just finished reading Collapse and I found it to be a great read. It was a great approach to the past, present, and future. I look forward to reading more books by Jared Diamond. "

    "I consider Collapse by Diamond as, "meh!" While the book is very informative about issues facing our world today, the author is a bit "gung-ho" about reaching hard conclusions based on scant supporting evidence. He should flesh out his theories a bit more if he expects to be taken more seriously in future."

    "Collapse is a fantastic book and you can tell that it's really researched too. The book itself combines environmental studies with anthropology, history and geography in order to make his point. He backs up everything he writes with information so you know that you're not reading fake news. I definitely recommend it, although it may be a bit dry for some."

    "This book is specifically about environmental history. Not a general science book. But it is well-written and worth reading."
