An easy to read introduction, but could perhaps do with an update,

This review is from: How to go Carbon Neutral: A practical guide to treading more lightly upon the Earth (Paperback)
If you’ve ever wondered how to start going about being more eco-friendly, this the sort of book that will help you on your way. If you’re not into eco-friendliness to save the environment, you can always do it to save money. Regardless of your motivation between wanting to go green, this book will give you good pointers where to start.
This book is easy to read, covers a lot of ground and specifically says when it doesn’t go into further details – and why – and suggests where you can find more information. It’s meant as a basic introduction, and as such, it does a good job.
There are a couple of editing mistakes (at one point, it says “see page X” … and that’s not the correct page) but that happens. The book is a quick and easy read, but as it came out in 2008, I’m not sure how much the situation around these things has changed, with legislation and fees and so on. Still, that’s something you could easily find out if you got into it.
How to Go Carbon Neutral is written by a Nottingham-based author and talks about regulations and costs as they relate to people in the UK, but there is a lot of general advice applicable to other countries as well.
