He will stop by The Booksellers at Laurelwood Feb. 18.

Random House spokesperson Michelle Jasmine said that the new book is An Inconvenient Truth for everything — and that it's a frank and clear-eyed assessment of the emerging forces that are reshaping our world and will continue to do so in the decades to come.

"With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the frontlines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet's beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler's Future Shock and John Nais-bitt's Megatrends," said Jasmine in a press release.
