KIRKUS REVIEW

An absolutely first-rate, all-around guide to environmental action. Naar, a New Yorkbased ecology writer, provides in-depth background on ecological problems and detailed information on possible recommended individual and mass actions, as well as fascinating discussions of various advocacy groups. Encyclopedic in scope, but written in a clear, personable manner (""Be careful not to mix a chlorine-based cleanser with a product containing ammonia, as I did once. You'll be producing a toxic gas--ammonium chloride""), and presented in an attractive format featuring shaded inserts and bulleted lists of actions, this stands out as the environmental handbook of greatest use for the general reader.
