Canadian Book Challenge Book Review

Living Me to We:
The Guide for Socially Conscious Canadians
By Craig Kielburger and Marc Kielburger

Many Canadians only worry about themselves. We don’t care about others or the environment. We usually care about our own conveniences and happiness more than anything else. In addition, when we focus only on ME, we become very egotistical and destructive to everyone around us. However, we can’t continue living this way without causing incorrigible destruction to ourselves and our planet for generations to come.

Thus, according to the authors, we have to become much more socially conscious instead of individualistic. We must get out of our comfort zones and care about others. In short, we have to take the time to care enough so that we can change our focus and lifestyle from ME to WE. Our new lifestyle should strive to reduce carbon, and increase our connection with the environment and those around us.

This book has contributions by Anne Murray, Margaret Atwood, Seamus O’Regan, Rick Hansen, Sam Roberts, Michaelle Jean, and George Stroumboulopoulos on how to be more conscious of how our actions affect others and our environment. What a unique book about a difficult and thought-provoking topic.

So, grab a cup of java and enjoy reading this treasure trove of insight and brilliance by two Canadian authors.
