5 STAR BOOK REVIEW
Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite
Shattered Earth: Approaching Extinction by Ian Prattis is a compelling prophecy for humanity. In this book, the author gives a strong warning against the threat to which human greed and abuse of the environment have subjected the earth. It is painful to read, but this is not fiction. The book unveils startling and disturbing facts to illustrate how much damage we have already caused the environment, from the throes of climate change to the evil of militarization, from excessive human greed to acts of violence and war. The author cites concrete examples of how the world is dying by using the experience of Australia with sand storms, volcanic eruptions, and coastal tsunamis, the widespread inundations in Bangladesh, the Netherlands and worldwide coastal regions, rising sea levels and many others.
Shattered Earth is a book with a message that should rouse every human being and make them ask serious questions about what they are doing to save the earth. While the planet is dying and many people are experiencing diseases and starvation, there is noticeable mindlessness that isn’t just shocking but evil. In prose that is beautiful and in a voice that is compelling, Ian Prattis invites readers to think about the fate of the planet and shares stories that are moving and revealing of the actions that are destroying our world. Shattered Earth: Approaching Extinction is a timely book and one that addresses environmental issues with much clarity. This is a book that should be promoted and now is the time to save the earth.
Shattered Earth: Approaching Extinction, Book signing with Dr. Ian Prattis Saturday January 18th, Singing Pebble Books, 206 Main St, Ottawa, Canada, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Singing Pebble Books in their January 2020 Newsletter had this to say from the Foreword by Michael B. Davie, Publisher.
“Author Dr. Ian Prattis opens Shattered Earth in the not too distant future with a futuristic analysis of Climate Change and “the inevitable fate provided by the suicide pact engineered by corrupt corporations for most of humanity.” From there, the award-winning writer examines destructive environmental trends and practices and explores ways to protect and preserve planet Earth.
Dr. Prattis employs a skillful blending of fiction, non-fiction and biographical narratives to effectively convey his message in a thought-provoking, reader-engaging manner. Shattered Earth provides both a big-picture look at our planet’s environment in crisis along with a more individualistic-personal perspective, evident in his own experiences shared throughout this book.
Shattered Earth is a joy to read with an underlying message that we need to treat ourselves, our neighbours and our planet with much more care and concern – if you weren’t an environmentalist on starting this book, you will be by the time you finish reading it. ”
