In the beginning, Mr. Prelitz tells a personal story of loss and renewal that is both touching and inspiring without overtaking the book and its purpose. In fact, it helps us understand all the better his journey to a greener life.

This is the perfect guide for someone just setting out to reduce their carbon impact and live a more planet-friendly lifestyle. It also has many useful tips for someone who's been on the path awhile and wants to reduce even more without lowering quality of life. In fact, the tips in this book just may help improve quality of life all the way around.

The tips are well-organized into categories, so it's easy to find what you're looking for in any given life area. If you're looking for ways to recycle your electronic gadgets, you'll find them. If you need help with the basics, like lowering your heating bill, you'll find those too.

The only thing I didn't care for is Mr. Prelitz's take on using solar energy to help solve our energy needs. I do not understand why he is so against it, especially when it can save individual homeowners a lot of money over the life of their home.

Otherwise, the book is a gem. I recommend it.

I really enjoyed this book, I read it in about 3 hours. The author is extremely knowledgeable and uses his own life experiences as examples of green living.
I've been going green for a few years now and have been looking far and wide for different green information and different tips and ways of living green. While much of the information provided in this book can be found in other sources as well, the author pieces everything in a easily digestible way and gives you the courage and strength to power through and live green and healthy.

A great book to learn easy steps to be green.
I gave up half way through the book. I might pick it up again, but there was so much about reading labels....
