Ethical Living (Rough Guides Reference Titles)
If you are after an eco-fright to find out exactly what is going on, or is that going wrong, in the world then ‘Ethical Living’ is for you. While the book is written for British readers, the book dissects the ethical implications for almost everything that our money is involved in. Ethical Living looks at which products and companies we should support and which ones we should avoid. It also looks at which "ethical" claims can we trust. The "Rough Guide to Ethical Living" cuts through the green-wash to answer these and many other questions.

The Sacred Balance: Rediscovering Our Place in Nature
The Sacred Balance: Rediscovering Our Place in Nature
This book, The Sacred Balance, will educate and inspire. For many governments, the economy and global competitiveness are the bottom line. This book asks what are the real needs that must be satisfied to live rich, fulfilling lives? David Suzuki begins the book by presenting the concept of people as creatures of the Earth who depend on its gifts of air, water, soil, and sun energy. He demonstrates how people are genetically programmed for the company of other species, and how we suffer enormously when we fail to live in harmony with them. Drawing on his own experiences and those of others, "The Sacred Balance" is a powerful, passionate book with strong suggestions for creating an ecologically sustainable, satisfying, and good future by rediscovering and addressing our basic needs.
