Praise for Surviving Civilization's Collapse

This much-needed book is a gold mine of careful research, clear-eyed analysis and practical recommendations.

Michael Byers, Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law, University of British Columbia.

An engaging and uplifting read! This book is well researched and provides comprehensive and humorous strategies for navigating society’s uncertain (and sometimes gloomy) future. I highly recommend it to students in the humanities or anyone looking for ways to create a more sustainable future.

And independently from Caitlin’s high-school teacher dad:

Surviving Civilizations Collapse is the type of text high school Social-Studies that teachers dream of. It’s accessible and engaging but never condescending or simplistic. While it can be read in an afternoon, I expect it will spark many hours of discussion and debate in my classes.

Kirk Doherty, High school teacher, Victoria, BC.

This short, credible and readable navigational guide takes us through the stormy waters we're entering to a safer harbour in coming decades. How do we survive our collapsing institutions and environment with a soft landing? First, acknowledge it is happening; second, strengthen our democracy. How do we accomplish this? Read the book!
