GIVEAWAY: Win Worldchanging: A User's Guide for the 21st Century

Here is another beautiful book that sadly did not make the cut to live on our ridiculously crowded bookshelves. It's a gorgeous and informative book, as goodreads will tell you:
Worldchanging is packed with information, resources, reviews, and ideas that give readers access to the tools they need to build a better future. Written by a diverse collaborative of innovators, Worldchanging demonstrates that the means for making a difference lie all around us.

This team of top-notch writers, brought together by Worldchanging.com founder Alex Steffen, includes Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture for Humanity, Geekcore founder Ethan Zuckerman, and sustainable food expert Anne Lappé, among many others.

Each chapter offers practical answers to important questions, such as: Why does buying locally produced food make sense? What steps can we take to influence our workplace toward sustainability? How can we travel, live, work, and learn in world-changing ways? How, in short, can we participate in building a better future locally and globally?

Worldchanging proves that a life that is sustainably prosperous, thoughtful and democratic, dynamic and peaceful, is not just possible, it's here.


Sound good? Excellent! Here are the rules of engagement:
-U.S. only please, this sucker is heavy!
-You don't need to be a follower to win although I love you if you are a follower/if you become one. :D
-Please feel free to tweet away about this giveaway, I appreciate it!
-Giveaway ends Friday, August 6th at 11:59 pm.

I love this book. I checked it out from the library, but I had (of course) to return it. It IS a big book and I'd love to read it more carefully.

I am a follower and I will (try to) Tweet about your contest.
