Format: Paperback
At last a 'green' book that is enjoyable and interesting, it does not preach but does educate. Great stuff ! A perfect Christmas or birthday present for teenagers, students and anyone interested in the environment who wants to have the facts at their fingertips but wants to learn them in an enjoyable way. Great street cred for a student book shelf. Reviewed by the taste makers of our era, Pete Tong, Alexander McQueen, Zac Goldsmith, Nick Cave, Zoe Ball and Norman Cook, David de Rothschild, Harvey Goldsmith, Georgio Locatelli... need I say more !

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. Hesmondhalgh on 28 Oct. 2008
Format: Paperback
This text was recommended to me by a family member and I must admit I was initially very sceptical as environmental issues have never really interested me. However, after reading the first few pages I was pleasantly surprised by Townsend's refreshing, contemporary style of conveying key messages on an existing but ever-exacerbating problem.

The clever use of humour and irony coupled with the obvious thorough and meticulous research which he had put into this masterpiece had me completely captivated from beginning to end. If you crave a read that is informative, thought-provoking, witty and inspiring then look no further.

This book will leave you hankering for more to the extent that, upon completion, your only disappointment will be that this gifted author did not discover 100 ways to f**k the planet! Without question my favourite book of 2008 so far.

Go figure what sort of book gets bigged up by everyone from Alexander McQueen, Pete Tong, Nick Cave and Rosie Boycott. Or if you can't get figuring - get reading. Get reading anyway. It rocks...

Format: Paperback
Picked this book up, who wouldn't with that title, and found myself actually sympathising with the "green" agenda. A highly intelligent and instructive read particularly for old cynics like me.

Format: Paperback
That's my Christmas shopping sorted... will be buying copies for my mates, especially the ones now living in America who will appreciate the wit. What a change to read up on environmental issues whilst having a damn good cackle at the same time. It's a really funny read on a very serious topic and brilliantly written... thanks Townsend and Glick! I can't recommend it highly enough.

Format: Paperback
Mark Townsend has managed to write a hilarious book on a deeply serious subject. It should be read by anyone with even a passing interest in the environment. No make that it should be read by everyone. Extremely well written, extremely funny, extremely thought-provoking.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed reading this entertaining insight into environmental issues that affect us all. An amusing book that 'makes you think' about our carbon footprint. This is both clever and funny at the same time - I'd highly recommend it.
