Product Description

Review

The environmentalist version of Martha Stewart Living. —Globe & Mail

(2008-09-06)

Focusing on well-being and the big picture, Suzuki turns around the conventional wisdom that living green means sacrificing comfort and convenience; providing information that the green life is frequently healthier and happier . . . Suzuki's approach is easy and joyful, ideal for the person who thinks going green is impossible or who is at a loss on how to begin. —Publishers Weekly

(2008-09-08)

Concise but thorough advice, in clear and readable text, for those who want to live greener but are overwhelmed by confusing media reports . . . ideal for the person who thinks going green is impossible or who is at a loss on how to begin. —Library Journal

(2008-09-08)

Suzuki's guide teaches readers how to become stewards of the planet, recommending green choices in all aspects of our lives . . . this book is an informative tool for improving your environmental karma. —Granville Magazine

(2008-09-19)

Canada's resident green expert gives readers the scoop on how they can reduce their ecological footprint and help build a sustainable future. —Green Living Magazine

(2008-11-26)

The Green Guide is pretty serious about sustainability. . . . David Suzuki writes in his latest book . . . that one of the easiest, yet most important, things you can do to reduce your ecological impact is to spend more time outside in natural settings. Not only will connecting with nature inspire you to become a better steward of the planet but 'the deeper your connection to nature and the more time spent outdoors, the more happy you are likely to be.' —Calgary Herald

(2008-12-18)

Format: Paperback
The science is well vulgarized, making it easy to understand the impact of the ecological situation today and that of tomorrow if we do not make changes. I was mostly delighted to read about all the inspiring examples from individuals, companies and society to show that is is possible to live in harmony with our environment without sacrificing our ' evolutionary comfort'. A must read for all adults and one book that should be added to high schools' curriculum.
