Editorial Reviews

Review

"The hot new green book on the market . . . A riveting, well-written and witty account of the origin of some of the common objects in people’s homes."—GreenMuze

"
Confessions of an Eco-Sinner . . . displays a refreshing ability to defy conventional green wisdom. . . . Pearce scores an inspiring read here, with a gift for getting to the heart of the matter in just a few words."—David Valdes Greenwood, Body + Soul

"With a straightforward writing style and a pace that circles breezily from travelogue to statistics to history and back, Pearce . . . [offers] hope for a more just and healthy future."—Molly Reid,
The Times-Picayune

"Sometimes frightening, always enlightening, [
Confessions] will teach you more about other people’s lives than you ever thought possible."—Catherine Brahic, New Scientist

"Far from merely presenting a litany of consumer sins . . . Pearce discusses a range of socio-economic solutions, including recycling alternatives, agricultural initiatives and population issues."—Ted Hainworth,
The StarPhoenix

"If you’ve ever wondered where all your stuff comes from . . . and where it all goes, Fred Pearce has beaten you to it, been there, cast a critical eye over it and published it here. Armed with a sense of his own ignorance and fallibility . . . [t]o his great credit Pearce has no fear of statistics and is skilled at making them more manageable, less illusory and, yes, sometimes more shocking. . . . Essential reading."—
New Agriculturalist

"It’s official: Everyone is going green. Sometimes, though, learning which behaviors really make a difference seems an impossible task. In
Confessions of an Eco-Sinner, Fred Pearce is determined to find the truth by following his possessions from the cradle to the grave. What he learns is sometimes disturbing, occasionally rewarding, and always eye-opening."—Rachel Tavares, Changing Hands Bookstore, Tempe, AZ
