Green Living That Goes Down Easy
on September 14, 2009
First, full disclosure: I wrote the money chapter for WGC, but given it is only one of 20 or a mere 5%,I feel like I can comment at least semi-objectively as to the merits of the Whole Green Catalog. As a veteran, well informed environmentalist (I published and edited an environmental journal for 15 years) I didn't expect to learn anything new, but I did. After my copy arrived, I figured I'd look over my chapter, quickly browse a few others, and show my wife what a great job they did with layout and design. Many hours later, however, I was still reading, telling myself, just a few more pages. But I kept going. Admittedly, I did skim a few chapters and didn't read every entry in even my favorite chapters, but this is a book that is meant to be browsed. And browse and browse I did. Sometime around midnight, I put it down to check out more later, surprised to find out I'd learn new tips and insights, easily making my reading time worth while. For anyone with less exposure to environmental info, you're likely to find an abundance of tips that will be helpful and fun to read.
