Editorial Reviews

Review

"After Green Metropolis, a revelatory exposition of why urban life is 'green,' Owen---brisk, funny, elucidating, and blunt---illuminates a wide spectrum of environmental misperceptions in this even more paradox-laden inquiry." ---Booklist Starred Review

Review

'David Owen sounds a wake-up call for everyone who thinks they're solving the problems of climate change and resource depletion by eating local, buying more fuel-effi cient cars, and fitting their house with compact fluorescents' Publishers Weekly 'Owen's critique resonates far beyond the United States - He gently dismantles the foundation of standard environmental behaviour with a series of succinctly turned arguments that (are) - presented with considerable wit and self-deprecation' Freakonomics.com
