5.0 out of 5 stars This is real power.....
If you are either a 'head in the sand' person, or a 'we're all doomed!' person you should read this deceptively simple book and 'get real'!!

If you already know that things could be better if only someone would listen to you, then you must read this book and then get on joining with local, likeminded people and making your voices heard.

So that...

3.0 out of 5 stars Feels like a first draft
I really wanted to like this book, because the whole Transition Town project is so inspiring and sympathetic. But unfortunately, this short book doesn't do it justice. It feels like it has been written a little too quickly and takes a little too much for granted in its attempt to help people understand and relate to the challenges and solutions it presents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't just read it, 18 July 2013

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World (Paperback)
The Power of Just Doing Stuff is short, to the point and is light enough to take on your bike, the bus or train.

It's chock full of inspiring examples of people that stopped complaining about the state of the world and started doing something about it. And then found that nothing succeeds like success. Funnily enough it turns out that doing things to change the world is a lot more effective than talking about how great it would be if someone would do something to change the world.

So do me and everyone else a favour. Read this book, but please don't just read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just good ideas, direct action, 26 July 2013
This review is from: The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World (Paperback)
For inspiring examples of how individual neighbourhoods and towns are "starting to build a new economy based on local action," in particular an economy that is both democratic and carbon free, read Rob Hopkins' book. The Transition Town movement, which he helped to start, has spawned hundreds of initiatives from below in 40 different countries. Don't wait for permission, writes Hopkins. Instead, he says, explore what's possible to do right now. He gives numerous examples of people joining with neighbours in riding bikes, baking bread, installing solar panels, planting community gardens, and sharing skills with each other. Our urge to participate isn't dead. It just needs resuscitation.
