"An insightful call to
arms about our precarious 21st century. That this is the crucial century few can
now doubt, and Byron sees this well."

author of Deep Time and Timescape.
offers some of the most compelling evidence for the realities of Peak Oil,
global warming, climate change, famine and pandemic disease that I have ever
seen. Byron has clearly done his homework and thoroughly documents every
assertion in the book....Infinity’s
is a fine read and is a stunning wake-up call."

"See a new book
by my friend Mike Byron: Infinity’s
Rainbow: The Politics of Energy, Climate and Globalization....all told, a very
good book and an important one."

you care about the future, yours or that of your children, you must read this
book. It is not all hopeless, for Byron gives us actions and ideas we can take
to reclaim our planet before it is too late. The coming changes are big, maybe
even massive, but taking those steps today can perhaps make then survivable, and
even turn things around so that maybe there will indeed be a pot of gold at the
end of "Infinity's Rainbow." Byron tells us at the end of his book, "This is our
one and only chance. Let's not blow it!" Will we heed that call to action?"

Looking for God in All the Wrong Places.
You will be amazed at this
intensively-researched and extensively-documented book. In his easily readable
but stunningly comprehensive work, Mike Byron carefully explains the links
between the seemingly disparate problems of corporate personhood, failed
politics, peak oil, endless war, religious fundamentalism, creeping global
fascism, global warming, and increasingly vicious hurricanes and tornadoes. You
will literally feel the scales falling from your eyes.
Infinity's Rainbow is a wake-up call for the human race.
We stand at the brink of a precipice. A follow-up book will be coming to tell us
what to do about all of this (it was too much to include in this book, said the
publisher), how to save ourselves from the now-inevitable cataclysm, and how to
piece civilization back together afterward. The first step is to understand how
we got to this point.
This is the most important book that I have ever read. It scares the hell out of
me, but it's better to know than not knowing. Ignorance is not "blissful" -- it is
stupid, irresponsible, and possibly suicidal. "Blissful ignorance" is no longer
an affordable option. Understanding is what we need now, and Infinity's Rainbow
gives it to us.
Buy this book. Infinity's Rainbow and its sequels will be the cheapest and best
investments that you have ever made in your own future, and the future of your
children and family.
