"Not a preachy guide but the diary of a struggle - through the myriad uses of bicarbonate of soda; instructions for assembling a wormery and a visit from three ethical auditors... There are plenty of facts and a selection of helpful letters - like the inspiring one from a woman who crochets her own dishcloths..." -- Carol McDaid Observer "The tone is just right for this book's target market...there is much that is inspiring here..." -- Tom Boncza-Tomaszewski The Independent on Sunday "Refreshing and funny, this book overflows with ideas for a more sustainable everyday life" -- Seb Boscher The Ecologist "A Life Stripped Bare is both funny and inspirational...Leo proves that living ethically isn't the preserve of the eco-warriors but of the typical man in the street. So take some action now!" -- Jenny Lee Irish News "Very entertaining...full of useful new things to fret about." -- Libby Purves Radio 4
