Every day, new books arrive in the offices of Utne Reader.
It would be impossible to review all of them, but a shame to leave many
hidden on the shelves. In “Bookmarked,” we link to excerpts from some of
our favorites, hoping they’ll inspire a trip to your local library or bookstore. Enjoy!
The Blueprint (Corinno
Press, 2012), by Daniel Rirdan, is a call to arms and an argument for

that lay down new paths for our economy, technology, industry and
politics. Read an excerpt on understanding climate change taken
from Chapter 1, “Climate Change: What’s In Store.”
