Overall it is a fairly interesting book to read. It contained a step-by-step guide to beginning change within a large organization, and tips on how any business can start to become more environmentally friendly. Although some are more practical than others, I think anyone would benefit from reading this book. It's not as heavy on the doom-and-gloom other works are, and while it won't keep you up at night it will certainly make you think. Of particular interest to myself was the Xerox case study, and the Coca Cola water usage study.
Re-engineering all of our human processes to create a biologically restorative economy is the challenge our generation must rise to, as my grandfather's generation rose to meet the Great Depression and WWII. This book is an invaluable guide to how we can rise to the occasion we are faced with.
