I picked this book up the other day at the library because it caught my eye on the shelf and quite frankly I brought it home because of the design and not the self-help qualities it may posses. I finally flipped through it tonight and boy what garbage.
Quickly: he recommends incandescent/halogen lighting over fluorescent and while claiming you should buy things that are good quality and have multiple uses vs. quantity he also recommends buying items often as they become more efficient. He lost me right with the lighting bit. The fact that someone in this day can be so flippant about these issues really gets me. One of the easiest changes to make in energy consumption is using CF lightbulbs.
At least the book as bright colors….
