Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"North thinks it’s time to leave the profit-rules/aggression-wins mentality behind us. She thinks it’s time for fun, not because she’s a hedonist, but because it’s the way to survive the global changes that we are facing." —Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer (April 2011)

"Carolyn North has done us all a service in writing Serious Fun. If you read and heed this book, your life will be happier and healthier. Your creativity will be sparked, your imagination will be fed, and your impact on the world will be more beautiful." —John Robbins, bestselling author, Diet for a New America, The Food Revolution, The New Good Life

"The personal slant makes the book so much more accessible than your average 'how-to' guide. I learnt a lot too . . . I was impressed with the energy for eco-solutions that North projects; I felt genuinely motivated to be greener." —Resource Magazine (July 15, 2011)
