Our friends at Worldchanging have created a real masterpiece of a book – “Worldchanging: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century”, a sizable tome packed with insight, stories, and tips on how to steer our planet and society in a greener direction. (I also wrote a little piece in it!). Anyway, by rallying readers and fans to buy the book simultaneously yesterday morning, the Worldchanging team managed to “pop” the book’s Amazon sales rank to #12 in the United States. That’s impressive, and a testament to the power of networked individuals. It will also likely lead to many more people finding out about it than would otherwise have been the case. The rank has slipped to #19, which is still impressive, and you can keep it there by grabbing a few as xmas presents. Buy the book here. (Sorry about the sales pitch, but this one’s a goodie)
