This is one of the best books ever published because it was able to ignite a movement that had slowly been dying. Gore didn't necessarily come up with anything new, but he was able to package the facts in such a simple, but powerful way that convinced many that the environment -- and how we are impacting -- matters.

The book itself is very easy-to-read and the graphics help support the main concepts presented. It dumbs down global warming enough so that the average person can get it, but it goes into detail about how the effects impact us and how much worse things will get in the future if we don't make any changes. The data is obviously not all Gore's but he does a spectacular job of making it people-friendly and helping us understand why we should care about the future of the environment.
