Review: An Inconvenient Truth

An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore

This is the companion book to Gore's documentary of the same name, which has been receiving positive reviews since its release earlier this year.

I thought this was a very powerful book - rather than making it text-heavy, Gore uses well-selected photos to make his point, and writes in short, easy-to-understand paragraphs about the effect our lifestyles have on the planet - global warming, pollution, the burning of rainforests and more. He concludes the book with a look at how everyone can take small steps to better the planet environmentally.

I'm curious to see the documentary now, but found this a worthwhile, interesting (and at times, simply terrifying) read. Recommended!
