Read in November, 2008

Crucial, if not always elegantly composed. A reader on Amazon criticizes this book for not coming up with any solutions to the waste crisis. This is not the case. Only a reader looking for a quick fix to an apocalyptic problem or a beguiling inspirational narrative such as Cradle to Cradle would make this claim. The book underscores that the only way to undo the damage we have done to the planet and to ourselves is to consume less--and thereby to initiate a fundamental, systemic break in the way that we relate to objects and the environment.
