I am only about 100 pages into this book, but I've already been filled with wonder and awe at so many points already, that I have to recommend this book.

This book is the antidote to some of the buzzkill books/DVDs I've read/seen in the past (End of Suburbia comes to mind). Instead of just fortelling the end of the universe as we (Americans and the West in general) know it, it offers solutions and a glimpse of a possible future.

Sure, when you step back and look at the big picture with an objective viewpoint, our current "way of life" is entirely ridiculous and unsustainable...but what can be done about it? Sure things like End of Suburbia will maybe wake a few up and that can only be a good thing, but again, what to DO about it? What are others doing about it?

This book answers a lot of those questions, and is very interesting and much more uplifting, without being pollyannish.
