Are we doing enough?

Are you concerned about the state of our planet and hope that governments and corporations will find a sustainable way for us to live? If you do not think about it too hard, that may work, but will it? Left on their own, with drivers of popularity and profits, I am not too convinced that it will.

The missing part of this equation is you and me. Individua

This is a very interesting and relevant book. I certainly read for enjoyment, but it’s nice to learn something along the way, and I learnt quite a few things reading this. It’s full of interesting facts and information, and it definitely makes you stop and think about your own impact on the earth, and many other things about our daily lives. One of the things I agree with is we should all turn off the TV and Wii-FM and read a book, and learn something new. It also hit home reading the section on ...more

I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of Feasible Planet. It inspired me.

I loved the passion and intensity that Kroes brings to a complex topic. He does not shy away from tackling controversial subjects and makes his opinion heard. The book is both a cautionary tale and a practical guide for how each of us can live a more sustainable life. There is something in it for everyone. You will be amazed at just how much power YOU (one individual) has to make a profound difference by taking just a few s

I had been looking for this Feasible Planet for a long time. I didn’t know it but a book that provides practical advice for living more sustainably – and well – is a gift to all of us. I read it all in one sitting, though I will be back for more detailed viewing; it rewards re-reading. Parts of Feasible Planet address climate science, heathy living and happiness, though the body of the work is devoted to hundreds of small identifiable things we can do to improve our individual environment and co ...more

Concern for our living environment

This book wasn't what I expected, as I thought it would be filled with a lot of how-to-live properly and recycle or whatever, but it was more than that. The author writes with the basics of doing the best with what we have. He has a few repeated thoughts, such a consumption, and global warming, but also humans need to slow down. Take a breath, and use what we need and not to be obsessive or greedy. It was more of an eye-opener, not about what people are doing, b

If you are a passionate environmentalist or even just curious about the plight of our planet, this book is a great resource. Kroes uses everyday language to explain the current issues and offers reasonable and doable techniques that we can all do to make things better. I like his writing style The book is not a dry read, or does it encourage despair. I would recommend this book to family and friends. I won an ebook version of this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

I have always wanted to make changes to the planet. I know I could do more, but I never knew where to start. I loved how this book gave me some great ideas.

In the past, I have shut the lights, tried to use what I needed, and tried to use real instead of plastic. However, after reading this book, I have so many new ideas.

This book not only teaches the reader how to maintain a lifestyle for the planet, but it also teaches how we can make choices without giving things up. I loved this idea as rig

“There are no such things as great deeds—only small ones done with great heart.”

Trying to live more sustainably is something every person on this planet needs to think about - especially those who can afford to buy smart phones, use electricity and buy food from a supermarket.

Ken Kroes has created a guide to more sustainable living which contains facts, tips and links to companies and websites that can help anyone on their path to better living. 

There is a bit of reading do in thi

Have you ever wondered what one person can do to address the serious issue of climate change, and the danger that human-generated activities threaten life on this planet? If that sounds like too ponderous subject for you, then stop reading, because you will not be interested in what follows, or in the book, Feasible Planet by Ken Kroes.

An ambitious book that gives guidelines for more sustainable living, it cannot be read in a single sitting, and has many sections that those who just want it stra

I won an ebook version of Feasible Planet in a Goodreads giveaway and I'm very grateful for that. This should be a compulsory read for everybody. It's full of important information and useful tips on what each and every one of us can do to help make life on Earth sustainable. I liked that the author didn't focus only on obvious environmental issues, but touched also on topics concerning human interactions, tolerance, discrimination. It's a well-researched book, while very readable, too. I will b ...more

This book is filled with information that the reader can use to improve the way they live and lessen the impact they have on the planet. Most of the information is non-technical and can be done by any one person. Like most non-fiction books it isn't all that exciting but does contain good information.
Clare O'Beara
I have enjoyed reading this handbook and discussion of how we can each make choices to lead more sustainable lives. No one book will ever cover every aspect, but major issues are presented. We are encouraged to make one change at least, because it builds up; we can then proceed to consider other changes.

I like the author's metaphor of a WII -FM radio station (What's in it for Me?) playing in our heads. This is how he demonstrates a feeling of entitlement and self-interest. Using this to illumina
