No Impact Man Review

The thought of killing yourself slowly over a period of time doesn’t necessarily put a smile on everyone’s face, but that is what we are doing throughout our lives. By polluting the world with our trash, toxic fumes, and nasty habits we are slowly killing ourselves and our planet. This is why Colin Beaven wrote the book No Impact Man. Throughout this book Colin try’s to portray a very important message to all of us, which is trying to not make an environmentally bad impact on our world so that we create a better life for the future. Even though this is a very good message and everyone should pay attention, he tends to lose himself in little things that don’t exactly need three chapters to explain. Throughout this book there are very important quotes such as “We can all change the people around us by changing ourselves.” I love this quote because it’s so true. If you want to make a change you’re going to have to start with changing yourself. You can’t be a hypocrite when doing something such as calling the world out and making everyone feel guilty, which Colin does. Even though this book portrays a good message to a lot of people, I would of rather just watched the documentary. I would highly regard you not to read this book because there are just so many bland and non-important parts. This book is flat out annoying and a very boring read. Take my advice with this good topic, and just watch the documentary.
