"A passionate and heartfelt call to care."
--Bruce Feiler, New York Times bestselling author of Walking the Bible and America's Prophet In You Are Here, Thomas Kostigen, the New York Times bestselling co-author of The Green Book, takes us to the most extreme environmental areas on the planet to show how what we do from the comfort of our own home affects people, places, and things everywhere. A timely, much-needed alarm that recalls Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth combined with a compelling travel narrative reminiscent of Anthony Bourdain with straight ahead Anderson Cooper-like reporting, You Are Here is "an intriguing and insightful account that deserves to be read by everyone" (Mark Plotkin, Time Magazine Hero for the Planet).
