An uninformed view on plastics, 8 Oct. 2011
The book reads as an educational account of Mrs Freinkel's effort to comprehend the world of plastics. Accordingly lot's of pages on trying to reproduce opinions and statements of experts and "not so much experts" making it for the reader difficult to understand what the author actually wants to accomplish. The title for certain is very suggestive but the content is weak on facts. It is undeniable that plastics have a significant impact on todays society for better and for worse - just like with anything human kind does. A balanced perspective is not voiced in this book giving a biased out look on plastics. Technology may offer a number of solutions but also behavior and attitude are critical to tackle much of the issues raised by plastics. In short do not waste money on the book if you want to become an informed person on plastics.
