"A humorous, self-deprecating tale of the crazy things that
happen to normal people when they take the green plunge."
--Alisa Smith, coauthor of Plenty: Eating Locally on the 100-Mile Diet
"One step a day doesn't seem like much, but over the course of a whole year it adds up to a world of difference. This isn't just a well-written and fun book about going green, it is about watching a personal transformation. Being inspired was never so entertaining."--Lloyd Alter, Treehugger.com
"Lively and specific, Farquharson's forthright chronicle of the ups and downs of green awareness is the perfect book for eco-skeptics."--Booklist
