Badly documented and therefore suspect
I am not buying this book, which has a very engaging title, for three reasons:
1. The second review provides clear warning of a light-weight schoolkid apporach to the material.
2. The publisher has failed to provide adequate documentation which combined with the page count leads me to suspect, as a very heavy reader and frequent reviewer, that this is a lite work.
3) The other books tend to confirm this book does not fall into serious non-fiction.
Instead, see Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything which is much closer to the “true cost” non-fiction meme that I have been pursuing.
