Berkeley publisher John Javna operates on the principle that individual actions can make a difference, even in today's mass-marketed world. He first tested his theory in 1989 when his small EarthWorks Press published "50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth." It worked. "50 Simple Things" topped Publisher's Weekly trade paperback bestseller list in 1990, sold 3.

What kind of car does your local politician drive? The next time you receive a piece of campaign literature, search out the phone number, call and ask the politician if the car is a low-pollution, fuel-efficient model. Also, if the propaganda doesn't say it's printed on recycled paper, ask why it isn't. Find out if he or she has a written position on the environment. Or attend an upcoming picnic in Moorpark to ask in person.

John Javna has written 20 books including a couple that were big hits, but he wasn't prepared for the reaction to this one. "People are ordering it by the dozens," he said. "Every time the telephone rings it's like this new adventure. It's kind of unbalancing me, in a way." Javna was sitting in his study at home in North Berkeley, taking orders for a book that is just getting into stores and hasn't been advertised anywhere.
