Giveaway: Worldchanging & Nature

Worldchanging Nature

This is part of the Jetson Green birthday giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment by midnight Friday, July 25, 2008, if you want to be considered for the contest.*

If there’s anything that I’ve learned from you the reader, it’s that you’re (1) concerned for the environment and (2) smart, engaged, demanding, and relentless in your pursuit of quality information.  For that reason, I’ve decided to giveaway two books together as kind of a bundle to one commenter.*  The first book is Worldchanging: A User’s Guide to the 21st Century in paperback.  The forward was written by Al Gore and the rest was edited by Alex Steffen — it’s 600 pages full of legit solutions.  The second book is Nature and Selected Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  What can I say about this book other than it contains over 15 classic writings that have influenced thousands and thousands of people.  Both books are highly influential, both books are perfect for smart Jetson Green readers.
