The Story of More

How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go from Here
By: Hope Jahren

Book Reivew

This is my first book in what I hope to be a long foray into a study on climate change. I was raised surrounded by people who do not take climate change seriously. After recently watching a TV show series that repeatedly brought up the issue, I decided I wanted to study it for myself. I went to my librarian sister, who is the manager of collection and development for her library system, as I often do, and asked her for some book recommendations.

I couldn't ask for a better first book to read than Hope Jahren's The Story of More. Hope's unassuming, data-driven, and story-driven approach makes for a fun, easy read while at the same time being thought provoking. I found very little that I disagreed with outright, and her modest approach gives room for a reader from any background to accept what see says and think about it.

My sole negative of the book is one that many will not find as a negative. For me, there was too much story with too much laying of ground work. This also may be the book's greatest strength. For me, after the first few chapters, I was starting to flit though the chapters paragraphs and pages at a time.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
