Very interesting book. I went in expecting to just confirm some things I already knew, but I thought the author did a good job forcing a wider view on issues of climate adaptation and resiliency. There's a tunnel vision engineer's view of "I did a good job solving this particular problem" sometimes, it's useful to have reminders that there are larger connections and equity issues at play as well.
