Alright, I really didn’t care for this one. It’s too textbook-ish without giving any real information. Too much theory and “should” and “ought” with not enough practical steps. As with all of the Complete Idiot guides, there’s a lot of fancy formatting, lots of white space, and a serious dearth of good information.
I did, however, like the chapter on raising Green kids – none of that Scare The Pants Off Of Them stuff, and very focused on Teach Them To Appreciate Nature. A huge thumbs-up in my opinion.
So, though this is, like all the books I’m reviewing, available at the Des Moines library, it’s not particularly useful.
