[Durnil's attack on chlorine is] one of the single boldest environmental policy ideas of the 1990's ... The message is that if someone as conventional and as conservative as Mr. Durnil can latch on to one of the great social transformations of the American century, then so can every other Republican in the country. The New York Times Book Review "This is a serious, thoughtful book. If they would read it, the phoney 'conservatives' now performing in the center ring in Congress might be shamed into mending their ways." Village Voice Literary Supplement "An engaging and thought-provoking memoir from a political conservative whose environmental consciousness was raised during a stint as co-head of a watchdog agency... Uncommonly sensible and heartfelt perspectives on being green, from a concerned citizen for whom environmentalism has become a matter of enlightened self-interest." Kirkus Reviews] "Gordon Durnil's book proposes ... a no-nonsense, workable alternative... Few leaders of either political party can match his courage and insight." - Jack Weinberg, Greenpeace "Here comes a thoughtful, experienced conservative with impeccable Republican credentials - a dedicated environmentalist with a different point of view. A thoughtful, readable mandate." - Ken Bode, Moderator, Washington Week in Review "I highly recommend this well thought-out and provocative tome to the many who have yearned to know the truth about our God-given environment." - Mary Matalin, Republican Strategist/Commentator "Durnil's commitment and his established political credentials may very well make him the parade master of a new generation of conservative environmentalists." - Theo Colborn, Senior Scientist, World Wildlife Fund "Every few years, I come across a book so exceptional that I cannot help buying multiple copies to give to colleagues and relatives... These chapters should be mandatory reading in environmental studies, government/public management programs, and in business schools." - Chemical and Engineering News "His story makes clear that the cause of conservation can be a unifying cause and that a conservative ideology can embrace a conservationists' deep commitment." - William K. Reilly "... a fascinating story" - Peter Montague, Village Literary Supplement
