THE GLOBAL DEAL by Nicholas Stern (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Based on the largest study of global warming ever conducted, The Global Deal offers a concise, accessible exploration into the climate crisis and its possible solutions, as proposed by one of today’s greatest economists.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s James Adams. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Enlightening and thought-provoking. The golden-throated narrator, James Adams, speaks BBC English, perfect in pace, enunciation, and volume.”—AudioFile

RATING: Suitable for adults seeking to understand global climate change.
In 2005, economist Nicholas Stern was commissioned by the British government to direct the largest study ever conducted into the scientific reality of global warming. The Stern Report, which made headlines around the world, is far and away the deepest and most far-reaching exploration into the economic and ethical consequences of this crisis—and, in particular, into the solutions for it.
In The Global Deal, Stern has taken that comprehensive and detailed report and produced a concise, vivid book that makes this critical information accessible to all. By understanding the very real risks we run if we continue business as usual, and by working together to enact a new global deal, we can not only avert catastrophe, but create a safer, more sustainable and prosperous world in the process.
