Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kostigen is an intrepid activist. You Are Here takes us to the hidden front lines of the war over natural resources and reveals how each of us can improve our planet without leaving home. A passionate and heartfelt call to care.” Bruce Feiler, author of Walking the Bible
“Kostigen takes readers on a whirlwind worldwide tour to expose the havoc being wreaked on the earth.” Condé Nast Traveler
“Certainly we need crash courses like this one, from knowledgeable authors who educate instead of preach. A Paul Theroux type with an environmental agenda, Kostigen doesn’t tell us to save the world; he shows us the price already being paid for our failure to do so.” Booklist
“An intriguing and insightful account that deserves to be read by everyone affected by these issues, which is…everyone!” Mark Plotkin, founder of the Amazon Conservation Team and Time magazine’s “Hero for the Planet”
“Kostigen’s quest for global perspective sees him scale every vantage point short of the moon and the results are jaw-dropping. Borneo, Alaska, Israel, China, India, and the Amazon—You Are Here has it all. This is a book of global significance.” Bradley Trevor Greive, author of The Blue Day Book
“Thomas Kostigen pulls no punches in this gut-wrenching book.” Maude Barlow, cofounder of the Blue Planet Project
