A companion book to the "Live Earth" concerts of summer 2007 -- printed, of course, on environmentally responsible paper.
"The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook: 77 Essential Skills to Stop Climate Change - or Live Through It," is a 160-page paperback release written by David De Rothschild, founder of Sculpt the Future, a non-profit environmental foundation, and includes a foreword by actor-director Rob Reiner.
Proceeds from the US$14.95 book will be given to the Alliance for Climate Protection, founded by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore, a co-chair of the July 7 2007 "Live Earth" shows.
"This innovative and practical handbook supports the crucial mission and message of the Live Earth concerts and aims to inspire each of us to play a role, to do our share, in confronting and attempting to solve the climate crisis," says Steven Pleshette Murphy, president and CEO of publisher Rodale Books.

This is a nice read
This funny book has a dose of reality, a sense of humor, and some wonderful tips for helping prevent or live through Global Warming. Though the book was silly and fun, maybe we should get a bit more serious on protecting the Earth. I still enjoyed reading it nonetheless.
