Any book that can get me to turn off the TV and check my e-mail only once a day deserves four stars from me. I found the book's ideas, if not all of the concrete suggestions, to be life-changing. I think, however, the author should leave topics such as parenting and dieting to the experts. Overall, this was definitely worth a read.

Gives 100 one or two (short) pages of practical advice, like going from a wood-burning stove to a natural gas stove.
