I was hesitating to buy this book because I was afraid that this is a promotional book using the image of Jessica Alba. Instead, it is a goldmine full of good advice and tips of all kinds. This book makes you feel better. I warmly recommend it to everyone!

The book is very real and eye opening. Not everything is practical to change in your life, which Jessica Alba acknowledges. However, it is very eye opening to the number of things we are exposed to on a daily basis. Great for someone looking to start a family or with small kids!

It is a beautiful book with beautiful pictures of Jessica and her family. The chapter on food is pretty well done and could be useful for people just starting out...

However, I was kind of disappointed in this book. The information in this book is in dozens of other books and most of this information has been around since I first started thinking about some of these issues as a teen in the 90s. The reason I picked up this book was I was hoping to learn about some new beauty and clothing companies that create eco-friendly products. While she did a pretty good job with beauty companies (but could have done better) I found when it came to clothing she listed too many well known designers or big companies (eg. H&M, The Gap, Chanel, Ralph Lauren) I was expecting something a little different. There are so many wonderful eco-friendly designers this would have been a wonderful opportunity for her to showcase some of them and dispel the myth that eco-friendly clothing=itchy hemp t-shirts. These days eco-friendly can be stylish. When you think about how Ralph Lauren and The Gap have been always been surrounded by controversy over their labour practices, should we expect their environmental practices to be any better? So why then should they be listed in a book about living naturally? It makes you feel that either Jessica isn't as committed as she claims, or that she did not do her research. Either way it left me not loving this book

I did give this book 3 stars because it could be useful for someone just starting and if it encourages people to make healthy changes that is a good thing. I also want to believe that her heart is in the right place. Perhaps if she wants to do another book she could use her celebrity to focus on companies truly making a difference while providing superior products. I would check that out

Interesting, and will make you question every product that ever comes in contact with your child. My family now thinks I'm paranoid..but whatever, they say paranoid, I say informed.
