I loved this book!! "Change the World for a Fiver" (incidentally also the cost of the book) is filled with 50 fun ways (action points) to improve the world we live in.

Saving the planet has become en vogue and I have found some books to be stuffy and repetitive. However "Change the World for a Fiver" looks at a bigger picture and also approaches changing the world (your world) from every aspect rather than just environmentally.

I'm all for making small changes to my lifestyle- but to claim that any of this is world changing stuff is ridiculous. There's nothing in here that anyone hasn't heard before.

A lot of the tips are also pretty conflicting, e.g. on one page they're telling you to take the bus instead of the car, on another they're telling you to give way to other drivers. To give another example, on one page they're telling you to use less paper and give away books, on another they're telling you to buy more copie

50 actions to change the world and make you feel good. That's what it says. Does some of what it says on the tin.

Not gonna change the mind of anyone who's mind hasn't already been changed. Some of the 'actions'useful and doable, some not so.

Worth reading through, picking up what you want and passing the book on.

Easy read, some thought provoking items, a pick up and read a couple of pages and then leave it on the coffee table for the next time the ads come on the TV.

Hmmm - most of these ways to change the world for a fiver are pretty obvious. A nicely presented book though :)
