I recently picked up Bob Henson’s Rough Guide to Climate Change, and I must say it fills a great niche. I’m a fan of Andrew Dessler’s book, which is a great primer. But (sorry, Dr. D) it’s a bit on the wonkish side. Henson’s book has a Rough Guide snap to it that makes it a great alternative for a general audience – solid on the science, easy on the eyes with lots of sidebars and graphics that make it exquisitely accessible.
(Full disclosure: I’m happy and humbled to report that Bob included Inkstain in his list of climate blogs worth reading, along with a number of the folks whose names you see mentioned in the rail on the right.)
