"Beyond Flying makes a persuasive case for everyone to minimise the number of flights they take, and gives invaluable practical advice and moral support. If you are among those who are already making an effort to fly less, or stop flying altogether, this book will strengthen your resolve." —Rose Bridger, theecologist.org
"I would recommend this book to everyone to gain some insight as to how flying affects the Planet and how those less likely ever to fly are the ones who are going to feel – and are already feeling – the brunt of the result of our obsession with air travel. Rating: Definitely five out of five." —Michael Smith, greenreview.blogspot.co.uk
"Beyond Flying should contain enough reasoned logic and well-travelled romance to convince all but the most entrenched fliers to at least consider their ways. With pages upon pages of practical advice and moral support, the book also serves as a fine guidebook for those that do." —Tom Revell, blueandgreentomorrow.com
