I've listened to every episode of the podcast The Anthropocene Reviewed, meaning I had kind of already read a great deal of this book before it came out. I do have to admit that I think some of the really impactful moments in these essays are more impactful when you hear them read aloud by John; however, they don't lose much in their written form, and he has gone back and added quite a bit too.
I also really love the mini reviews he has for things like back page book ads and the font used in the book. They gave me so much delight to notice.
You already know this, but I give The Anthropocene Reviewed five stars.
