Insightful and thoughtful book about lifestyle change,
This review is from: No Impact Man: Saving the planet one family at a time (Paperback)
I expected to hate this. I expected to find it individualistic and self-centred, with a focus on feelgood action and a great deal of smugness. Instead, Beavan is actually quite thoughtful about the relationship between individual and collective action, and revealing about what can and can't be done to opt out of a wasteful, planet-trashing way of life.
I was particularly interested in what he discovered about the economy (and ecology) of time - how doing without lots of 'time-saving' stuff actually gave him and his family more time to spend together.
I'll watch the film now too.
