Review

"What set Zehner's work apart from the glut of other environment-related titles are his fresh ideas and superlatively engaging prose."—Carl Hays, Booklist Online

"With chapter subtitles like "Step Away From the Pom-Poms" and epigraphs from the likes of Dr. Seuss, Zehner is a delightful apostate in the church of green energy."—Sarah Rothbard, slate.com
(Sarah Rothbard slate.com 2012-08-01)

"This book is a must read for anyone concerned with sustainable living."—Daniel J. Benor, International Journal of Healing and Caring
