First, this book is very easy to read. Each tip is only a few pages long, so it is easy to read in small pieces or out-of-order. The information it presents is very practical, listing a wide array of energy-saving tips ranging from the more obvious (changing light bulbs and using programmable thermostats) to a good selection of not-so-obvious (getting off of junk mail lists, making green investments, identifying appliances which burn a lot of electricity even when they are turned off, cleaning your refrigerator coils, using carbon offsets, and many more). Overall, I was very impressed with the breadth of ideas represented here, which encompassed much more than I expected or could have ever thought of on my own.

Each tip provides interesting background as well as hard numbers so you can gauge the impact and determine if the tip makes sense for you.

Having read this book and implemented a number of the key tips, I have learned a lot and also cut my monthly electric bill roughly in half. I would strongly recommend this for anybody who is interested in saving money or sustainable living. And for around $10, given all the money you'll save, you can afford to give copies to your family and friends.

Format: Paperback
This book is well-organized, and provides practical information about how the average person can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. There actually are a lot more than 51 tips since each tip gives a lot of other action steps you can take. It not only rates each action as to whether it's no-cost, low-cost, or an investment item, but also provides financial savings info and - most important - the amount of CO2 emissions prevented by taking the action. Considering the huge financial savings possible by implementing these tips, the book is a bargain. But considering what's at stake, the financial savings are irrelevant. As the book's dedication page states, we take these actions for "... the members of the next generation, who must live with the decisions we make today."

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book. I didn't think I had a lot to learn about saving energy. The Authors do a great job describing just about all one needs to know in order to save money...and the planet and its resources while preventing climate change.

It was a very well-researched book. On some of the calculations, they state assumptions. Some are left on faith. This is OK. There were a few subtle details that may have been a bit overstated, however their estimates on how much can be saved are not exaggerations. If anything, they are conservative, especially given the cost of gas, heating and electricity...If only water were more expensive...alas!

This book inspired a Weatherstripping party at my apartment complex and has helped me have even more footholds into discussions about conservation and how much difference it can make.

Thanks to the Authors. Wonderful!!!

I bought this book expecting the usual (impractical) tips about saving money and the environment at the same time. What I found was a book full of VERY EASY suggestions. For those of you about to make a major purchase (house, refrigerator, washer/dryer, etc.), there is plenty of information for you as well. But the majority of the tips (and $$$ savings) come from things that anybody can do. Definitely worth the investment.

This is a MUST READ for anyone wanting to understand their personal contribution to Global Warming and what they can do about it!

This book tackles a daunting, huge problem in a VERY encouraging way. It provides tools anyone can use to reduce their personal contribution to this problem and that of their community and their nation. Let's hope many schools add this book to their curriculum!

Format: Paperback
The thing that I enjoyed most about this book was the fact that you didn't have to start with the first chapter and continue all the way through form start to finish, instead you could pick a topic that interested you and read about that. I also liked the fact taht they included a website with links about things such as how to install dimmers on your lights step by step as a do-it yourself weekend project. The book seemed like it would be a fantastic educational tool for all levels of education all the way form elementry school to high sicool and even beyond. In two words the book was tremendously empowering for all ages!
