I strongly support all of the intentions of this book, so it feels a bit unkind to be rude about it, but I think I will be taking the advice on the back cover of recycling it fairly quickly. There's a great deal of padding here (pointless graphics with acres of space around them). What material there is, is quite good - which makes the lack of structure to it all the more annoying. The more detailed information you might expect to find, for example about recycling plastics, is missing - there's just a reference to a website (which turns out to be aimed at business users).
It is motivating, but so superficial that I think it's rather a wasted opportunity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just good enough. 28 Mar 2006
This book is worth having on the shelf if you want a very simple intro. to living greener but is outdone by other books in the field that are even more competetive with regards pricing and don't waste as much paper and energy ( I would guess ) in their production. Nothing in it that I would call new but the style in which it is written is appealing and I found it a pleasant read with no distractions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight 24 May 2006
This book is light on anything new or useful. If you are the slightest bit aware of green or eco issues you will know more than this book will ever impart to you.

The book is colourful and easy to read which places it in the category of a child's book rather than an informed adult read.

Sorry but it is not worth the money.
