SYN: Themed in areas such as environment, etc and shows one act you can do every day to change the world. Has very simple things and big things as well. Great stories, inspiring articles, funny tidbits and generally things that would change your perspective on things.

This book is very easy to read There's a topic for each day and there are chapters which makes it very easy to just pick a few if you want to.
There are fun facts, and small things you can do, and it's really a very inspiring book.

Excellent springboard for ideas “to do good” on a continuum from everyday small changes to community-sized projects.

This book has lots of interesting ideas to make a better world, from tips to living a more eco-friendly life to volunteering opportunities... It is mostly UK-centred, so some actions won't be relevant to people in other countries. Also, I wonder about some of the suggestions. I don't really see their point... But overall, it was a read that inspired me to do some things differently. I recommend it.

Not quite a change, more of a nudge. The book could have gone more in depth but it just played it safe. Though I did learn many things from it.
