4.0 out of 5 stars Great tips, needs to cite sources, September 9, 2013
By 
This review is from: The Imperfect Environmentalist: A Practical Guide to Clearing Your Body, Detoxing Your Home, and Saving the Earth (Without Losing Your Mind) (Paperback)
I'm really enjoying this book and see myself going back to it over and over again. With a touch of humor that brings her down to earth and an unusual understanding for the every struggle to bring eco-friendly practices into a practical home, she offers easy to understand and easy to follow tips.

I wish she'd offered sources. Often Gilbert says a study said this or that, but she never tells us which one. It leaves the book in a place that feels more like humor than non-fiction. It lacks credibility.

Great comment about citing sources. Are you an editor?

I agree about the citing of sources but I don't think it takes away from the credibility. I didn't even look for sources until I saw your review honestly. A lot of the facts she gave, I found the same information in my College Environmental Science book which did cite sources.
