Book Review: Shift Your Habit

Shift Your Habit by Elizabeth Rogers

Not recommended

Beware: Snark ahead:

Shift Your Habit claims to be able to help you save money and the planet at the same time.

If you’ve been living under a rock since the eighties… sure.
If you’ve never heard of “an inconvenient truth”… sure.
If you’ve not been to a home improvement store… sure.
Hell, if you haven’t been to Wal-Mart (even the *evil empire* is greening up)… sure.

If you have, in any way, shape, or form, been a part of the environmental movement or read the Penny-pinchers Gazette? No. You’re better served reading *any* of the hundreds of green or frugal housewife/mother/swinging single/fashionista blogs that populate the net.

Heck, why not head to the US Government: http://www.energy.gov.

This book is nothing but a series of re-hashed tips tied together by testimonials for “converts” who were too stupid to turn off their lights when they left the room. I found the entire exercise useless and extremely depressing.

Have we “treehuggers” really been screaming into an empty desert for 20 years now?
