Review

                                 PRE-PUBLICATION ENDORSEMENTS

--  SHELDON WHITEHOUSE, U.S. Senator 
"David Stookey's primary argument, that climate change is coming out of the political realm and into our daily lives, is one of which we would all do well to be better aware.

--  JOHN ENGLANDER, oceanographer and author of High Tide on Main Street 
"Using a 'no-regrets' approach, Stookey provides page after page of easily overlooked, practical guidance so that you, your family and friends will be more financially secure in an insecure world. Includes lots of references and links for more information as things change in the coming years."

--  CHUCK COLLINS, senior scholar, Institute for PolicyStudies, cofounder of the Resilience Circle network, and author of Born on Third Base 
"This book is full of thoughtful advice and practical tips for weathering the ecological and economic storms on the horizon. Stookey writes with a humane sensibility and grounded realism that invites us to act not from fear, but from pragmatism and possibility."

--  BERT SPERLING, author of Cities Ranked and Rated, creator of BestPlaces.net 
"A very good book. Uncommonly well-researched with solidadvice on how you can protect not just your finances, but also your mostvaluable assets--your home and family. An invaluable roadmap, which includesup-to-date links to many resources so you can drill deeper into individualtopics. I'm very impressed with this book and I'm looking forward to using itas a reference for my own work regarding quality of life in different U.S.cities."

--  MICHAEL H. SHUMAN, author of Local Dollars, Local Sense: How to Shift Your Money from WallStreet to Main Street and Achieve Real Prosperity
