Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A veteran journalist and levelheaded mom tackles the ethics of everyday life

 

We live in a society that is at once the most politically aware and the most consumer oriented in human history. Twenty-first-century shoppers don’t just consume; we investigate and categorize the impact of our decisions on climate change, animals, our health, our political views, geopolitical relationships, working conditions, and more. Yet when we actually try to live according to our principles, it can be so overwhelming, contradictory, and demanding that we want to scream. What’s a good liberal to do? Fran Hawthorne sets out to answer this question—and spark more.

Synopsis:

Award-winning journalist Fran Hawthorne has been a writer or editor at Fortune, BusinessWeek, Institutional Investor, and other publications. She is the author of three books on health care and investing, including Inside the FDA and Pension Dumping. She lives with her family in New York City.

About the Author

“People are quickly learning that living a simple, low-impact life actually isn’t so simple. Thankfully, there’s much-needed relief to be found in Fran Hawthorne’s funny, poignant, and often eye-opening way of sorting through the dilemmas—and solutions—facing socially and environmentally minded consumers.”—Greg Melville, author of Greasy Rider: Two Dudes, One Fry-Oil-Powered Car, and a Cross-Country Search for a Greener Future

 

“With a welcome mixture of facts and humor, Fran Hawthorne highlights the dilemmas of living an environmentally virtuous, healthy life in a fiercely consumption-oriented culture.”—Michael F. Jacobson, PhD, executive director, Center for Science in the Public Interest
