Product Description

Review

'This is a brilliant book about the making of a political activist. For anyone who has ever dreamed of turning their frustrations and beliefs into practical action - this is for you.' --Rosie Boycott

'The climate crisis needs a response from across society if we are to get our governments to take the urgent action necessary to curb spiralling greenhouse emissions. This story about one woman's decision to be part of the solution rather than the problem will hopefully inspire many others to similar levels of creativity, commitment and protest.' --Caroline Lucas - Green Party MEP

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Moving and unpretentious account of how Omomd became a climate activist - in fact enough to turn anyone into a climate activist. I thoroughly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
The first half of this book outlines how Tamsin Omond became an eco-activist. It's well written, chatty and engaging, but beneath there's a serious message about climate change that Tamsin delivers really effectively: we have to make changes to our lifestyles now to safeguard the future of the planet.

The second half is a 'how to' guide describing how Tamsin organised the climate protests that have made her famous. They're really detailed and step by step, and this is a great primer in grass roots climate activism.

This is an incredibly energising and inspiring book, and I recommend it unconditionally for anyone who cares about the future of our planet and what we can do ourselves to save it.
