Anne Robinson, Karen Saxby
Veteran worrier, author of To Be a Machine and father-of-two Mark O'Connell meets the anarchists, environmentalists, far-right nut-jobs and super-rich who are preparing for the end of days.
NOW UPDATED TO INCLUDE THE LATEST APOCALYPSE
'Like an even more deadpan Louis Theroux... essential reading’
The apocalypse is nothing new, but of late Mark O'Connell has found himself particularly anxious about the end of the world. As things fall apart around him, he sets out to meet the people preparing to survive: environmentalists meditating in remote Scottish forests, billionaires dreaming of life on Mars or a villa in New Zealand, and conspiracy theorists yearning for a lost American idyll. Journeying with him through this landscape of anxiety, we learn just what it takes to make it to the other side.
