Title: "An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It" 
Author: Al Gore 
Editorial House: Rodale Press

Summary of the content
The book "An Inconvenient Truth" mainly focuses on global warming. The book starts with the writer's personal involvement on environmental issues. The book then explains about the greenhouse gases and how it is one of the major factors to cause global warming. The book also includes about the writer's professor who studied about the reasons behind the increment of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Several effects of global warming like the melting of glaciers, heat-waves, drought, rise of sea levels and other environmental issues are later linked with global warming. The writer also includes his own real life experience about the effects of global warming. The book also deals with the interrelation between humans and the environment and ends up with suggesting the readers about the solution. 

Opinion and impression
I read the book some years before. The book was quite interesting with all the examples, the graphical illustrations and also some personal views. So, in my personal experience, it was a quite good book and since Mr. Al Gore also traveled many cities giving presentations about global warming, we could all gain some knowledge on some interesting facts about the environment. 

Comment of recommendation
I think every book has its own good and a bad aspect but it does depend on who is reading the book. I think I would recommend this book to students who are interested in the field of environment. The other good aspect about the book is that some students might not have enough time to study the whole book. So, the students with less time can also watch the documentary with the same title "An Inconvenient Truth". Both the documentary and the book are presented by the same writer, Mr. Al Gore.
