Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, a publication of the Association of College and Research Libraries, selected Associate Professor Brian Stone's The City and the Coming Climate: Climate Change in the Places We Live as a 2012 Outstanding Academic Title in Earth Science. Each year Choice publishes more than 7,000 reviews of current scholarly books and electronic resources in an effort to assist libraries in building their collections. Every year in the January issue, Choice publishes a list of Outstanding Academic Titles that were reviewed during the previous calendar year. This prestigious list reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by Choice and brings with it the extraordinary recognition of the academic library community.
Choice writes that The City and the Coming Climate is a "well-written" and "informative book on many overlooked aspects of climate change that are perhaps more important to people and society than simply the steadily increasing concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere considered in most models of climate change." Choice highly recommends Stone's debut book for all readership levels.
