'One of the most important books I've read this year. How Are We Going To Explain This? is a crystal clear treatise on where we are, and what we need to do right now.

"breezy, easy to read, perky, full of good stories"

Mommers, a journalist, writes almost exactly like his bestselling Dutch compatriot Rutger Bregman — breezy, easy to read, perky, full of good stories and all done with a brisk summary of the history of ideas. The problem with this style is that it lacks depth, so that one ends such books, as I did this one, with a head full of objections and questions.
