Time to Eat the Dog?: The Real Guide to Sustainable Living
The world and its resources are finite, yet we are seemingly locked into a system based on growth: growth of population, growth of income and growth of consumption. From this irrefutable starting point, Time to Eat the Dog? attempts to uncover what sustainability really means. Brenda and Robert Vale explore the environmental impact of the decisions we make, from what we eat and what we wear to how we travel and enjoy ourselves. Their book will make you see your life and your place in the world in a completely new light. Challenging the orthodoxies that underpin our entire economic system, this is one subversive read.

This books is a rather analysing book on what actually matters. It's not afraid to explore areas of sustainability where others does not dare to go.

I see people complaining that this book goes to far in suggestion how one should be sustainable. I think most people live so far from being sustainable that this book is a necessary, eye opening read.
