This is a book that should be widely read and understood. We are in dire need of more public attention to the lethal consequences of our abuse of plastics. We are sleepwalking into an ecological catastrophe. Well done, Susan Freinkel I hope you can make your voice heard, specially by teachers in primary schools, where the children whose lives we are messing up can learn the lesson and start agitating for change.

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.
