This book is the perfect guide to getting started, or in my case, to moving forward. I feel motivated - much more so than I already had - to become an actively environmentally conscious member of my community. I'm planning already to pass this book along to the members of my condo association to see if I can convince them to install solar panels to our flat roof. And to talk about converting our water heaters. I will forever buy my produce local from the many farmers markets in my area.
Thank you, Nancy, for putting together such a comprehensive and inspiring guide to being green. -- Kristy Andres, Reader
