Awesome little book! Easy read. Very informative! It goes over the resources used in making a specific product (e.g. a t-shirt, a hamburger, a newspaper, coffee, cars, etc), using it, and disposing of it. The information is presented in a fun, easy-to-read manner. I've assigned this as a textbook in a lot of my classes. Students really love it!

A basic guide to the materials that make up your everyday "stuff." It includes descriptions of the manufacturing and natural resource extraction required to get the finished product to you. A quick and easy read on the topic. Something like the "State of the World" reports from the WorldWatch Institute are good for those seeking more detail.
