Review: 5 stars
This book talks about climate change. How anyone can start to make a difference by changing what you buy, activities, cook, etc. The author is Bonnie Wright, an actress famous for her role in the Harry Potter movies.
First this book does NOT talk about politics at all. I loved that about this book! When the world made climate change into a political topic, sadly people won’t even listen to how they can make changes.
This book covered a lot of heavy topics. But she mixed it up with each page. From pictures and diagrams, to interviews and recipes. I really enjoyed the break of it to read the interviews throughout. Additionally, when reading these types of books, you have it either too hard to read or a “dumbed” down version. This was the perfect blend. I really enjoyed the writing!
I really liked the pictures in the book. All were colorful and some interesting. But I really enjoyed the break from all the climate change jargon to see the pictures!
I live in a rural conservative area. I do not have access to a lot of the things that she discusses in the book. But…. I can do my part and do what I can. I really liked how many suggestions she made in the book.
I also found the topic of “Ikigai” interesting. I just read another book that highlighted this a few months ago. It was interesting to read another take on this same theory. I really find it fascinating.
There are a ton of really good recipes in this book too! I really want to try the “earth burgers.”
I have read a lot of these climate change books and this book is one of my favorites.
