Evidently, a reviewer for The New York Times agrees. I found the opening sentence to a review of the book a bit amusing:
There’s a certain problem with branding oneself a radical environmentalist superhero and then letting a real old-fashioned book about the experience roll luxuriously off the presses. I don’t care if the thing is printed in beet juice on paper recycled by indigent Amazonian tribespeople under the glow of beeswax candles!
When you’ve renounced most worldly goods in the name of saving the planet, as Colin Beavan and his family did for most of 2007, it seems a tad contradictory, if not downright hypocritical, to land with a splat two years later in the crowded stacks of Barnes & Noble. Surely there’s a less material way of making an impact...

You can read a good bit of it for free here. Another review, of Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, can be read at the same site but different location.
Or, you can go to your local Barnes & Noble. Hopefully they are carrying the journal there already. If not, recommend it. And consider yourself cool.
