Science Books & Films - Donald F. Logsdon, Jr., Union Institute and University, Sacramento, CA

"TWO STARS! The book contains lots of pictures and diagrams to illustrate the concepts present, along with a glossary of words that might prove difficult. A useful exercise is one where the reader is asked to write their own story about an asteroid strike. The book also contains a list of resources for the student who wants to know more." - Science Books & Films

Library Media Connection - Candi Pierce Garry, Teacher Librarian, Hamilton (Ohio) High School

"Imagining a world changed forever by issues of biological proportions is scary, and this series pulls no punches. Based on scientific and historical evidence, each incident is examined via a hypothetical future disaster, which is then explained in detail. . . .Color photographs and sidebars add interest, and students are encouraged to explore their ideas with tips for story writing." - Library Media Connection

Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"This unsettling but wildly entertaining series imagines life on earth following any number of horrific events: an asteroid strike, nuclear meltdown, super-plague, etc. Imaginative and surprising—rarely does series nonfiction feel like a summer blockbuster." - Booklist

Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"...there is plenty of speculation, but it’s backed up by good research, which takes into account both scientific and human factors, and paired with excellent graphics, maps, no-win multiple-choice questions, and even—surprisingly—a few silver linings that (in theory) come out of the experience a decade later. Equally frightening and thought provoking." - Booklist
