Book Reco: Ultimatum by Matthew Glass

July 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

I read Matthew Glass’ book “Ultimatum” on the Kindle after reading this review in The Economist, which ended thus: “Mr Glass, who has worked in America and with human-rights groups, is familiar with the corridors and committee-rooms of power. He is good at portraying diplomatic brinkmanship and political in-fighting, and knows how policy gets made, all areas that a clumsier writer might have struggled to bring to life. This is a novel for politician and non-politician alike. And the ending is brilliant.”

I loved the book. It puts you into the head of the newly elected US President in 2032 as he faces multiple challenges, the most severe being the damage being caused by global warming and climate change.
