Yeah, it's a little dull. But it's packed with useful information if you can wade through it. I especially liked the authors' focus on the most significant sources of pollution, water usage, and etc. They make the point, for example, that leaving the water off while you brush your teeth is all fine & good, but that modern agriculture actually uses (and wastes) far more water than home use does. Thus, reducing your consumption of meat and conventional produce is one way to reduce your water consumption significantly--that is something I had not considered previously.
