Starred Publishers Weekly Review for Bill Streever's Heat

December 14, 2012

Fantastic starred review for Heat: Adventures in the World's Fiery Places by Bill Streever (Little, Brown, Jan 2013) in  Publishers Weekly:

 

Streever's follow-up to his 2010 New York Times bestseller, Heat... (is) delivered in funny, matter-of-fact prose, as when describing his ineptitude at starting a fire ("If the world were populated by people like me, we would still be living in trees and eating fruit. Climate change would not be an issue"). In this worthy companion to Cold, Streever is able to mix the pop science, personal experiences, and historic asides into a fun and informative commentary on a subject that few people think about despite its inherent life and death implications.
