Worldchanging: A User's Guide for the 21st Century is getting rave reviews as being a book that is "helping people see what's possible." I think it's sometimes very easy for us to get overwhelmed by doubt and apprehension of how just one person can help with the problem of global warming. Their 600-page companion to the eco-friendly website of the same name is full of easy to understand, resourceful ideas from around the world on how to live a more eco-friendly, sustainable life. All of which make being 'green' seem a lot less daunting. If you were moved by Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth then Worldchanging will hopefully move you to action.
All entries include reviews of pertinent resources, including books and websites where readers can get more detailed information. And with color photos on nearly every page, and written by a huge array of fascinating contributors living and working around the world, it's as inspirational as it is educational.
