I think this an excellent book. It was written in 2008, when green stuff was compiled in books. Most of this stuff is online, but it did offer me other starting points for websites to check out.
The format is great, very easy to read and find materials and resources.
Though I do question his "live rich" motto (he is talking about money,) I did notice it is a lot of simple living habits, or "hippie habits" that lots of people shun. The author formats it in a way that makes it seem "cool," which I think is great. It is just a shame that it took this to get some to step away and help the earth. All in all, by helping the earth and living simply, we live "richer" with what we have and our relationships.
Again, it is a good resource worth picking up and skimming through if you already heard the "go green" spiel before.
