Read an article about the state of the world to practise and improve your reading skills. If your view of the world comes from watching the news and reading newspapers, you could be forgiven for lying awake at night worrying about the future. Apparently, rising violence and population rates mean humans are both killing each other in ever larger numbers and being born at rates the world's resources can't sustain. To make matters worse, all the wealth is concentrated on a handful of people in the world's richest countries. People in low-income countries live in poverty while the West gets richer. Depressing, isn't it?

The State of the World Series has always been a source of well-documented research of our planetary path to sustainability. This yearly report contains valuable insight to many of today's more pressing environmental problems. In particular the 2006 edition has a chapter devoted to water issues, superbly written and documented by Sandra Postel one of the foremost voices on these matters. I also liked the chapter dedicated to the meat industry, right on time for the developing crisis on avian flu.

There's really not very much to say about this book, except that every single human being who knows how to read should read it.

Some of its contents are positive, much of it is negative, but everything is equally important to know.

This world of ours deserves a better fate than being utterly destroyed by the human race. However, this nasty possibillity is approaching extremely fast, and unless people start reacting to the issues at stake we're all doomed.

This book will not save the world, but if there's one book that can really make a difference, then this is the one.

So go get it. As fast as you can. You owe it to the world.
