A Cygnus Book Club member from London had this to say about 'The Lilypad List':
‘I urge everyone to buy and read this wonderful book and give it to a friend. I have read a wide range of spiritual, self-development and ecological books. This one simple but comprehensive book sums them all up. The author writes from a wealth of knowledge, experience and wisdom. Her aim is not to make us feel guilty about our current lifestyle; rather, she helps us understand why we behave as we do and work out how we can change to benefit ourselves and the wider environment. The Lilypad List is inspiring and practical as well as warmly and amusingly written. It is the ideal handbook for anyone who wants to live a simpler, less stressful life in the 21st century.’
