This book is a really great way to get started living a greener life. It's written directly to teenagers, and is therefore easy to understand. One thing that I really appreciated about this book was that it did not come on too strongly. It stresses the importance of taking small steps to help the planet. A good read for anyone who wants to help the environment.

Could be a useful resource for a person wanting to go green.

Generation Green by Linda Sivertsen and Tosh Sivertsen*
Cant really rate this material.

Generation Green: The Ultimate Teen Guide to Living an Eco-Friendly Life is designed to help you learn how to go about your every day life while being green. To live a green life you first have to understand The Green Machine, the environment. Once you grasp the largeness of its effect on us, you can begin follow a few Green Ideas that will help you live a healthy, green life.

Green Idea One: Green Machine. Whats happening to our environment?
Green Idea Two: Eating Green. What foods are green and what arent.
Green Idea Three: Green Begins At Home. How to green up your living conditions.
Green Idea Four: Guilt-Free Shopping. How to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink, and Refuse.
Green Idea Five: Hanging Out Green. How to hang out and party the green way.
Green Idea Six: Green Wheels. What vehicles are energy efficient?
Green Idea Seven: Greener Schools and Careers. How can school be greener? What are some green jobs?
Green Idea Eight: Step Up And Speak Out. How to make a green difference.
Green Idea Nine: A Day In A Green Life How to make every day a green day.

Besides the fact that this book is nonfiction, its just suppose to be a helpful guide for people who wish to live that lifestyle. That makes it really hard to even go about rating it. So thus, I cant really rate this material.

If you agree with the authors philosophy/views, and you wish to learn how to live out a greener life, then yes I suggest this book. It contains tons of interesting, and uncommon ways to live green. Example: Host a Really Really Free Market, which is like a huge garage sale but everything is actually free. Tada! You just Recycled.

Since I dont agree with everything stated by the authors, and I have different views I cant really review this book as accurately as I could a book written by a person who shares my beliefs.

Generation Green could be a useful resource for a person wanting to go green, but other than that I dont see any need to read it.
