5.0 out of 5 stars
A life-changing read, 30 April 2007
I can only echo the last reviewer in saying that this has been one of the most beautiful, inspiring and terrifying books I have ever read. I can only compare it in terms of it's impact on me to reading 'Seeing Green' by Jonathan Porritt in the mid-eighties. It's contains an amazing diversity of information and moves seamlessly from the poetic to the scientific. If I could sum up the book I would say that it is both an essay on the fundamental flaw in modern Western human thinking and a key in how to get ourselves out of the global environmental mess we have got ourselves into. It's the kind of book I want to buy 10 copies of and give away.
