Provides much needed perspective,
This review is from: How Bad Are Bananas?: The carbon footprint of everything (Paperback)This is a great book - informative, thought provoking and fun.
It tells us what we need to know about the impact of the types of products we buy and the sorts of things we do. I was particularly impressed with the layout, ranking the items in ascending order is a great idea - it gives proper perspective to which things have the biggest influence on our carbon footprints.
The writing style is clear and conversational - never judgmental or labouring the point - the book left me feeling empowered rather than guilty.
Zestier than "Driving Over Lemons" fruitier than "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit", "How Bad Are Bananas" earns a prime place on my bookshelf, where the books I expect frequently to refer to reside.
