2006, Rodale Books
The Good: This book, with its large glossy pages, is a very easy read. It's styled in such a way to make even the least scientifically inclined understand its message. Pictures, charts, highly quotable factoids, everything eye-catching and yet very basic. Through this book, you really feel Gore's passion for saving the world from global warming.
The Bad: Unfortunately Al Gore is sort of a boring man. He drones on, which is clear even through the vibrant background. And while this book is informative, it's hard to decipher where the line is between his politics and the cause at hand.
