KIRKUS REVIEW

Imaginative, sensible, accessible prescriptions for making a dent right now in the environmental and social problems that plague the planet. Hollender, founder both of Warner Audio Publishing, Inc., and of the New York Greens environmental political group, organizes his far-reaching material into 120 ""Actions""--""Disposable Diapers,"" ""Twenty-eight Reasons to Stop Eating Meat,"" ""Socially Responsible Travel,"" etc. In turn, each Action includes background and explanatory material, followed by a list of specific actions; for example, the Action on ""Protecting the Earth's Ozone Layer"" presents a discussion of the increasing hole in the ozone layer, and the inimical role of CFCs, followed by eight specific recommendations--including telling your butcher to package meat in paper rather than Styrofoam, and where to buy CFC-free appliances. Practical and inspiring, this manifesto and blueprint for grass-roots activism is to be published on New Year's Day, 1990--a worthy way to help kick off the now decade.
