5.0 out of 5 stars a world of hurt...and hope... 22 April 2008
By Gene Berger - Published on
Format: Paperback
You may be well aware of global warming and the environmental problems facing our beleaguered planet. Or you may be one of the naysayers who believe those problems are contrived and part of some low-down conspiracy. Regardless, the enlightening words of Al Gore have got to hit a nerve.

Our Purpose is composed of Gore's acceptance speech for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and includes excerpts from his work, An Inconvenient Truth. They are both informative and captivating and should make even the biggest skeptics take pause. His sincere eloquence addresses the tragedies and irreversible damage that face the planet because of man's carelessness. But he also speaks with enthusiasm of the possible triumphs humans would experience should we be smart enough to reverse the devastation.

If you are concerned with the world's environmental problems and need some inspiration, I encourage you to pick up this compelling little book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its purpose... to encourage you to read An Inconvenient Truth 12 April 2008
By R S Cobblestone - Published on
Format: Paperback
This "book" is pretty expensive if you calculate the cost per page, particularly pages of original writing.

All 19 pages.

That's the number of pages devoted to Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. The rest of this 64 page wonder is a repeat of a few chapters from An Inconvenient Truth. The message rates five stars, but the delivery here rates one. Three is being kind.

If you want more, invest your money in Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming.

Now, I'm a believer in Al Gore's message here. However, if you want the message, buy and read An Inconvenient Truth. If you want the acceptance speech, take the 10 minutes to read it in the bookstore, or read it online.
