"Read this book, be entertained, be ashamed, and then do something to stop the insanity."
Thomas-Homer Dixon, author of The Upside of Down
"Passionate and forcefully argued, Tar Sands is a wake-up call not just to Canadians but to the wider world to take a serious look at what is happening in northern Alberta. To call this book a polemic is a compliment."
Margaret MacMillan, author of Paris 1919 "Andrew Nikiforuk is one of the most astute, relentless and original writers of his generation. This book, which reveals the true cost of the Alberta tar sands, shows why he's so admired in some quarters and so feared in others."
Gary Stephen Ross, Editor-in-chief, Vancouver Magazine
