I was fooled by the first suggestion or two being things I hadn't heard of, and I started a list of web links to follow up.
However, it quickly went downhill ...
Most of the book was a mixture of obvious things:
Use your library,
Use store loyalty cards,
Grow your own veg,
Use BBC iPlayer for free TV (Yes, it was published this year !)
Make a babysitting rota
Drink iced water to keep cool in summer ! (No, really !)
Or outrageous things that the ordinary person would never do:
Shoot wild animals (legally)
Cook and eat roadkill
Generate your own hydroelectric power (Initial outlay £11,000+, erm)
Rarely do I feel I've wasted my time reading a book.
In this case, I really felt I was reading a book full of ideas pinched from other people's books/websites,
mixed with common sense (Insulate your house. Compost your foodwaste.)
and sold back to me.
