This is a great book for someone who wants to make better, healthier choices but doesn't know where to start and isn't ready to chuck it all and live in a tent in the woods with no running water or electricity for the rest of his or her life.  It's easy to read--the information is broken down into chunks, with really helpful, practical tips and choose it/lose it recommendations, complete with some brand names.  I'm actually thinking about buying a copy of the book to use as a reference when I shop.  Beware, though: once I read the section on skin and hair care, I started reading labels and felt an urgent need to go to the grocery store to replace all my fiance's toxic products!

My one quibble with it is the inconsistency of the use of grey boxes.  Much of the time, they indicate "lose it" lists or warnings.  Other times grey is used merely as a section marker/background shade.  My brain learned to assume "grey = bad choices," and I had to consciously shift my thinking every time this wasn't the case.
