« Which Title Would You Choose? »

If you read this blog regularly, you already know that for the past couple of years, Michael Johnson and I have been working on a joint project, the One Earth Project. We now have a book manuscript completed and a blogsite, as well as projected plans for film. The manuscript is even with a second publisher, awaiting their thoughts. But we are still settling on a title for the book — that despite that one title was previously announced on this blog. You can see that we’re still mulling it over. So we thought it would be both fun and enormously helpful if you would help us pick a title. 

Of the following three titles and subtitles, would you rank them in order of which appeal most, hook you most, make you most curious, or whatever criteria you wish to use? Please mix and match the titles and subtitles if that helps you vote. Please rank the 3 from first to last and leave your comment soon.

Know that your reply will help Michael and me proceed on self-publishing as well as in our conversations with conventional publishers. Thanks for your participation in the One Earth Project. And now, to the voting! Here are the titles/subtitles waiting for your action.
  1. Blinded by Progress: Five Earth-Destroying Practices We Can Change
  2. The Frogs Are Drinking Up Their Pond: Five Earth-Destroying Practices We Can Change
  3. The Eden We Can Choose: Correcting Five Choices Keeping Us Out of Earth’s Renewable Garden

I vote for the frogs - I think that is the most vivid.

Here is my rating, most liked to least liked:
1. The Eden We Can Choose: Correcting Five Choices Keeping Us Out of Earth’s Renewable Garden
2. The Frogs Are Drinking Up Their Pond: Five Earth-Destroying Practices We Can Change
3. Blinded by Progress: Five Earth-Destroying Practices We Can Change

To me, they basically all are saying the same thing, so my criteria came to based on the most positive, least accusatory/negative title. I think that anyone living a multi-earth narrative will hesitate to read something that is accusatory in the title, whereas they might be more likely to read a book of this nature if the title is more constructive vs. critical.
