I have actually read this book, cover to cover, marking significant passages, and am in the process of summarizing these. The book is comprised of densely written essays, and the topic is somewhat off-putting, but the knowledge is essential in learning how to discuss the highly-charged topic of climate change. I would recommend this to anyone so interested. I picked up so much on the first tour that it profoundly changed my thinking and approach to the topic. Many useful references follow each essay, with the essays also commented on by other writers, who list their sources also.

The book was indeed hard to read. Many of the concepts were specialized. But there was a lot of real, psychiatric-based understanding about humans and their relation to climate change. Some of it I found very useful.

Some was excessively based on antiquated ideas of identity, and consequently of self.

Notions more recently arrived in the west of the insubstantiality of the self, of its illusory nature, and of the interconnectedness both of life forms and of the living and non-living realms--recently termed "nations," as in "tree nation" or "rock nation" by some indigenous writers--at times played second fiddle to writing about new modern developments following from the work of Freud and Jung.

Still, I'd give it five stars for those interested.

A well-crafted, urgent and highly valuable book on a most important set of issues July 12 2014
By Jamey Hecht - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've just started reading this book and couldn't put it down for about five hours. It's the best item in a still-nearly-vacant niche that should soon be swelling with more books and films asking how exactly we repeat our failure to change the way we live. An anthology of related yet interdisciplinary essays by diverse hands, Engaging with Climate Change maintains a high level of readability, insight, and moral courage that any reader might find rewarding. Though in some places the language about our peril seems understated, in other places it is as dire as it ought to be. I hope the price of the book comes down so that the audience can increase. This is a fine, important book.

Someone's having us on. March 7 2013
By Chris B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I gave the book five stars for gall, and recommend reading it, in spite of not having read it myself, to those who want to understand the state of Academia in the 21st century

I watched a Youtube video on the book launch and had to see if this book was for real. Is it any wonder that there is so little respect for the field of psychoanalysis? "Climate Change Deniers"?

I suppose this goes to show just how gullible and easily led even educated persons can be.

Just how many CO2 atoms can radiate on the head of a pin.
