'A year in the life of the hapless eco-warrior and gifted comedian crusading against his own environmental apathy. Even if he doesn't quite manage to save the world, he makes it a funnier one to be in.'
- The Times reviews:

"What the environmental movement has been waiting for is a plane-frequenting, blissfully ignorant comedian with no green credibility whatsoever to tackle one of the most important issues of our time. When non-expert Mark Watson announced his intention to spend the year becoming less Crap At The Environment, within 24 hours, 500 mates and fans had joined him. He lived for (almost) a week without plastic. He ransacked libraries in order to read frightening books on climate change. He lured audiences outside to plant trees, confronted his fear of bike-riding, even started eating vegetables. And a man who began 2007 as a blight on the planet ended up coming to the attention of the most famous almost-president in the world, Al Gore..."

"FIVE STARS!!! Mark Watson might be preaching to the converted as far as I am concerned, being as I am already a green writer and campaigner. That aside I would have no trouble giving this book to my less than green friends or relatives. I learnt a thing or two from this book, such as methane being 25 times more damaging than co2, making me reconsider my cheese intake. The book is funny, light hearted and has the feel of chatting in the park rather than being preached at."
