For a free Nook book, it covered the basics of "going green". It wouldn't be too useful for the hardcore environmentalist. A short intro to recycling and energy saving tips will help reluctant recyclers to actually do it! I plan to share some of the tips with my fifth grade science students.

Really interesting, a surprising look at how we poison ourselves everyday without realizing it. A must read!
