Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein, the author of the book, is a Canadian writer and activist best known for her critiques of capitalism and climate change inaction. She explains in the introduction that she has been writing about the latter subject for over a decade and has also produced films and co-founded an organization called The Leap, which brought together a coalition of movements from progressive causes to create a plan for combatting climate change.
