The author has many great books but this isn't one of them. I doubt that many of the ideas or tips if you will can save much money, and little to no positive effect on the environment. Case in point, in the book (in my words here) you can save "X" amount of carbon emissions if you get rid of your gas guzzling SUV and get a hybrid. My problem with is simply when you trade that vehicle in or sell it, it doesn't go to the crusher. It still remains in service somewhere, at least in most cases and getting rid of paid off SUV to spend 15,000-20,000 on a 2 or 3 year old hybrid isn't saving any money.
There is little to no real investment advice on the matter of investing in Green Companies. Buy Green mutual funds. I didn't need too buy this book to tell me that.
I can't recommend this book, I don't think much research could have been done before this was put together in my opinion.
If you want green info on saving money and the environment I would look elsewhere.
