Reviews - What do customers think about Energy: Use Less-Save More: 100 Energy-Saving Tips for the Home (The Chelsea Green Guides)?
would be great as a promotional pamphlet Mar 15, 2008
I am a thrift conscious consumer, i.e. college student. I was looking for helpful ways to reduce my outrageous heating bill in the blistery north. I thought this would be a great book, it was cheap and promised 100 tips. I considered buying the other books in the series and I'm glad I didn't.
It's not that it was a bad book per se but it was not as insightful as I hoped. All the information in the book can be found on the internet, your local hardware store, or even given out by your utility provider. Needless to say I was disappointed to find that not only did I not learn anything new but all the information was available from many free sources.
