The question might be in an opinion-based grey zone. If it is, I apologize.
My wife and I want to get informed about climate change. We want to read a book (no online course etc.) and it should be either in English or available in Portuguese and German. It is supposed to "start from the beginning" e.g. treating us as people that almost don't know anything about it. We wish a rather scientific approach (for example with references to papers) and it should of course talk about the strongest evidences of the existence of the climate problem and its causes.
After some short internet research we thought of "The Rough Guide to Climate Change of Robert Henson.
The question is: Would this be a good choice? Does it fulfill our requirements? And since it is (at least) 9 years old, is it maybe too old? Maybe some significant findings were added in this time. And if it isn't a good choice can you recommend other books?
Thanks in advance
