5.0 out of 5 stars Reinspired, reempowered and reassured!, 18 July 2013

This review is from: The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World (Paperback)
I've been familiar with Transition Towns for some time and have read other books and articles that Rob Hopkins has written, as well as seeing him speak. In this little book, as in his others, he is extremely accessible and unpretentious and has a unique ability to outline some very serious issues without making you feel like hiding his book somewhere and burying your head in the sand. I guess the whole principle behind Transition rings through clearly in this book: together individuals, within their communities, can do something that really can make a difference and that the very process of starting to engage and do something (anything) together reaps so many positive rewards. After reading the simple, lovely, commonsense, insiring stories from across the worldin this book you're left asking Why not? rather than Why bother? - even if we didn't have the problems of climate change and peak energy, all the things that people are currently doing to address them at a community level leave them happier and stronger, more connected and more resilient, so there is really nothing to lose! A great book to reground you in a sense of your own value in tackling issues that can sometimes seem too big to even see.
