I thought this book was fairly easy to get through and I liked how the subject is relevant to pretty much everyone in America. Never before had I given any thought to how just simply taking care of ones yard by killing weeds could have such a detrimental effect on the environment. Lawn people is a term that describes people that will do anything to have the best lawn on the street even if it means poisoning the underground water system. I also liked how Paul Robbins found out that even though middle to upper class families understand how important recycling and protecting our environment is they rarely do so and most of the time they are the ones who are using the most chemicals because they can afford it and it seems like a class thing. I know after reading this book I’m going to thing twice about putting harmful chemicals on my lawn when I grow up.
