I am not a fan of Amazon, as I consider their business practices to be harmful to the environment.  However I want as many people as possible to have access to impartial energy saving advice, therefore I have decided to publish the book on Amazon.  For every £1 that Amazon take in fees, I will invest £1 in cooperatively-owned renewable energy generation.
