The book is divided into 20 sections, and each section contains basic tips to decrease your environmental impact.

This is a very good book to get if you are just learning how to live greenly. If you've already done research or been in the scene for a while, this book doesn't offer new information. However, if you're building a home and need more ideas on how to be green about it, this is a great book for reference and ideas.!

Format: Paperback
I consider this book "light green" at best and corporate greenwashing at worst. There are some useful references to organizations that give accreditation or screenings, if you want to buy something that is greener. The problem is that when green solutions are still focused on buying things, we fall short. The format of the book is not useful, and I don't see many people sitting and reading it cover to cover. Its almost like a reference book but not quite laid out in a way that facilitates that use. The book also makes controversial recommendations, including the use of nuclear power, although the disposal of nuclear waste is one of the largest environmental problems of the planet. The entire chapter on Planning Your Legacy falls short of truly green methods of burial, going so far as to justify the use of embalming fluid, which is a highly poisonous soil contaminant. Even the explanation of composting makes it sound too difficult to bother with. A person who is truly doing nothing good for the planet would probably find some good information in here to get started, but if you want to live a truly green life, there are far better resources. The environmental issues we face are far too severe to shop our way out of them. Eating at a greener restaurant or buying a t-shirt that promotes recycling are great but have the potential to be feel-good solutions with meaningless consequences.
