A new way to read a book

If you own an iPad (or enjoy reading on an iPhone or iPod Touch) then I highly recommend downloading the newly released - and for a limited time, lowly priced at $5 - iTunes app version of Al Gore's Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis.

The Our Choice app redefines the reading experience, creating an interactive multimedia resource comprised of "animations, interactive info-graphics, pictures, audio, text, an hour of documentary video and more." Being able to easily and quickly zip around the material with a literal swipe of the finger is quite an enjoyable experience.

Not to mention that the book is an excellent, informative resource, providing invaluable insight into what might possibly be the greatest challenge facing humanity today.

And to further motivate you to give the app a try: Gore is "donating 100% of the proceeds I would otherwise receive to the Alliance for Climate Protection," an organization he founded with the purpose of raising awareness about the threat of global warming to humanity.
