'Although many of us are already doing a great deal, there remains however a curious phenomenon of "airflight carbon blindness" where individuals who meticulously change light bulbs, use the bus and recycle, still find it just too easy to hop on an cheap air flight. Similarly national and even international frameworks often ignore flying. We urgently need to talk about flying and this book certainly gets the conversation started!'
Paul Allen, Project Director, Zero Carbon Britain
'McManners could have titled his important new book Fly and Be Sustainable, with its bold and provocative vision for transforming the aviation industry from a laggard of the fossil fuel age to a linchpin industry of the future. Building on the industry's rich entrepreneurial tradition, his proposals could very well usher in a third golden age for the industry and provide a crucial step for a sustainable future. Whether this book disturbs, enlightens, angers or provokes into action, it provides a much-needed jumpstart to the debate on sustainability and deserves a wide audience.'
John E. Reardon, Editor, International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education
'For those who live by air travel, McManners sets out a tough agenda for a sustainable aviation industry.'
