Everything you've been told about being green is wrong. The quest for a breakthrough battery or a 100-mpg car is a dangerous fantasy. We are consumers, and we like to consume greenly and efficiently. But David Owen argues that our best intentions are still at cross-purposes to our true goal: living sustainably while caring for our environment and the future of the planet. Efficiency, once considered the holy grail of our environmental problems, turns out to be part of the problem - we have little trouble turning increases in efficiency into increases in consumption.

Loved it.
Eye opening read.
Scary to think about the rest of the world and made me understand that we should all be thinking about the rest of the world.

This book should be taught in business school, it is that imperative. Any entrepreneur or manager should listen to this every Christmas break to start the calendar year off right.

Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life.

I love Peep Show so I thought I'd give this a go...and I'm happy I did.
I do not have a boy, but i reflect on the way that we're raised now and how I was raised. Being in touch with your feelings from a young age will help build a stronger man in the future. Ditch the macho BS and just be human and interact in a manner that makes you feel good and adequate always.

But just like other strategies it only helps if you implement. I took some things away, so there is benefit.
