Reviews of A Short History of Progress
- Bronwyn Drainie, Quill & Quire, January 2005
- "What makes Wright's book richer than most pleas for ecological sanity is his ability to strap on seven-league boots and take his readers on a sweeping educational tour of history and every continentís previous civilizations."
- Devika Mistry, September 2005
- "Wright guides his readers through the history of the world since the Ages to present, in a manner that is not only elegantly crafted and conjured but also thorough and expansive in its content."
- Ben Bull, Raise the Hammer, 28 November 2005
