Price: £12.99 (approx. $17) Release date: Out now With the United Nations’ scientific advisory board recently issuing a startling warning that unprecedented co-operation between all of the world’s major powers will be needed to avert potentially dire consequences, the timing of this book couldn’t have been anymore apt. While it’s looking unlikely that the world’s leaders are going to take much notice any time soon, there’s no reason why we as individuals can’t act. Handily, the WWF is here to tell us what we can do to help.

Yes, it may at times feel like a lecture you’ve already heard hundreds of times before, but all things considered, maybe it’s one that we really do need to hear. After all, we only get one planet; time to start looking after it better.
