A humorous look at how to live your life in an environmentally friendly way, without breaking the bank or becoming an eco-hippy. Most people, unless they are really committed, don't have the time to sit down and seriously tackle a book on the environment, but many of us feel we'd like to be doing more to help. This easy-to-read little book solves that dilemma. It's full of really valid, practical ideas that are easy to put into action, and the asides (and pictures) are universally funny. There's a tip per page, and sensible explanations as to why each suggestion will benefit the environment. The author doesn't preach, and keeps the tone light-hearted - but the end section of the book, with its sobering facts on what we're doing to the world around us, reinforces its message eloquently. The book should appeal equally to those who are already living green, and to those who, like me, need some gentle persuasion!

I found this book gave so much excellent advice about how to be green without having to change my current practices radically. It is easy to read and there is something in there for everyone. If you did not already realise what trouble the world is in, it hits home after reading the facts and figures - we all need to do our bit and I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who wants to start helping, but does not know where to start. Also, the book is excellent value for the amount of information the reader can gain.

Witty little gem of a book with concise and simple suggestions which you can easily incorporate into your day-to-day life. Great starting point and a good soft intro for those who are perhaps a bit sceptical. An ideal little gift item to send to all your friends, and definitely one to keep in the loo for a quick read.

When I ordered this I expected it to be fairly basic, but I did expect it to have some usable tips.

The book is filled with more facts than it is on green living tips, but even then the facts seem a bit basic, I think anybody with any interest in greener living already knows that taking the bus is better to cut down on congestion than using your car.

What little the book does have in "tips" are just plain silly, their method of saving water is to suggest you bathe with a friend. Their other suggested method is to reduce your water consumption in the summer by not washing your car and tell people the bird droppings are a new style statement...

It may just be me, but I don't find those "suggestions" helpful in the slightest and are silly rather than humorous.

There were a few usable (but very basic) tips to save the planet, such as reusing your carrier bags, or putting a device in your toilet cistern to reduce water use, but unfortunately the best way of reducing paper wastage is to just avoid this book completely and find one that has something actually worth the paper it's printed on.

Frank, witty, concise...what more can you ask for in a little green book? The bath advice alone is well worth the cover price. Go on, buy a few and send them to pals. You too can help save the planet.

This book really surprised and impressed me. It contains so much useful information yet it is tiny. I would say it's worth every penny, especially if you're keen to limit the damage you are doing to the environment.

A good starting point, but you'll soon want more information.

Excellent little nugget of a book. Very light-hearted look at a topic that is often preached. g8.
