From the Publisher:

Number 4 in Northwest Environment Watch's series of short, hard-hitting books on creating a sustainable society

From the Author:

Parts of Stuff are available paper free, and free of charge, on the World Wide Web (at northwestwatch.org). Reading it on a desktop computer for an hour takes one-fourth to one-tenth as much energy (depending on your computer and its source of electricity) as went into producing each paper book, which is good. But reading it on your computer produces no revenue whatsoever for Northwest Environment Watch, which is bad.
