Reviews

'A master of storytelling, Dan Carlin uses vivid detail and intuitive empathy to imagine what it was like to live through the end of the world. He takes us on a sometimes terrifying journey through the past that offers a glimpse of our possible future. Carlin's engaging and accessible style invites us to ponder the rise and fall of civilizations and ask where we may be headed. The end of the world is not merely a catastrophe that waits for us down the road; it is a ghost that haunts the places we've already been' Mike Duncan, author of The Storm Before the Storm

'This is the perfect thought experiment for anyone who believes the world is doomed, if only to remind them of one essential reality: the world has always, always seemed doomed. But it's also a great compendium for everyone else, mostly due to Dan Carlin's supernatural skill as an animator of history. It feels odd to classify a book about barbarians and flu pandemics and the morality of nuclear war as fun, but that's the single best modifier for The End is Always Near. It's an apocalyptic discotheque' Chuck Klosterman, author of But What If We're Wrong?
