worldchanging: a user's guide for the 21st century, sustainability, green, al gore, sagmeister

A few days ago we announced the release of Worldchanging: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century, the new book from the Worldchanging crew (of which I am the Managing Editor and Jill F. is a contributing writer). Since then the book’s gotten great reviews in the New York Review of Books and BusinessWeek.

Tomorrow morning, Wednesday November 1, we’re trying to mobilize a grassroots effort to get this thing to #1 on Amazon by asking everyone who is intending to buy a copy (and those who didn’t know they were intending!) to do so at 11:11am Pacific time.

Like movies, the success of books is largely determined by the response they get during their first week out. We think this is an important book with the potential to change the global conversation about sustainability, and we hope you’ll join in helping to make it a success.

Hit this link tomorrow morning and let’s prove to the world that the sustainability movement is growing and has the power to make big things happen. (Also, it’s still almost 35% off on Amazon right now, so it’s a steal!).

Thanks, Inhabitat readers.

    I ordered mine a week ago before they were available. It arrived today much to my delight, and though I haven’t had the chance to read through it yet, it looks quite fantastic.

    Most books have a plasticized cover, Brad, which is not even recyclable, but this book is made out of 100% recycled paper and offset with wind. Go read about it. How about you start with knowing what you’re talking about?

    This is an amazing book. I’m going to buy another copy now.

    I buy far less important books every day. Literally. I’m on my way to Amazon now!

    Ok – so the big book with the extra cardboard sleeve being hawked to us to buy on Amazon is going to save the world – because it looks so cool? How about you start with your own publishing and distribution practices. Ironic that the first thing you see is a diatribe against mango baggage titled “Buy Local.”

    I’ll try to help by spreading the news and I’ll pay a visit to Amazon.

    My best regards.
