Who would have thought that reading about how to change your habits & save the planet could make you laugh out loud?  The humor makes reality easier to digest, as do the short sections/chapters and grey "sidebars."  (They're not really on the side.)  Some of their suggestions will take some dedication to achieve, but others are so simple anyone could do them--and everyone should.  Forgoing plastic water bottles is one example.  Long live ceramic & stainless steel!  The book also weighs the pros & cons of disposable & cloth diapers, microwave ovens, dishwashers, etc.  I highly recommend this book as a companion to Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver (which I think everyone in America should read).
