Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and practical Suzuki is one great writer. This book reads so easily and has his awesome, hysterical, narrative. He's sure got a sense of humor with how he approaches things and he really lays this out for you. Here's what's happening, here's what we are doing about it, here's what we need to be doing about, here are simple amazing ways you can do it! He gives me hope for the future and I really enjoyed this book. I think if everyone read it they'd feel a lot easier about climate change because they'd really know how they could make a difference without having to change everything about their life.
