The Anthropocene Reviewed: Essays on a Human-Centered Planet

by John Green

Dutton, 2021

Adult Nonfiction Essay Collection

Summary: John Green reviews various human-created things and experiences, examples include: Diet Dr Pepper, Air-conditioning, Lascaux cave paintings, Canada geese, sunsets.

Overall I learned a lot about each topic covered and a lot about John Green himself. There is an abundance of honesty plus humor. Also it is a view of humanity that doesn’t skimp on critique but still presents an optimistic view. I understood this writer better and I felt understood as well.
