Because it focuses on business, the authors watch every penny, encouraging business owners and operators to go green for the bottom line. Personally, I've always wondered why businesses resist going green, when it is dollar-smart. One of my favorite examples in the book is one of the authors' friends, who "took the initiative to be the green champion in her office building...Upper management...she felt did not support her or the greening program she was trying to initiate." Read: thought she was a pain in the butt. They were converted when she discovered that her company had been watering the neighbor's lawn for the past five years, to the tune of $17,000.
Riley and Gaddonniex take every assumption apart: manufacturing, packaging, transportation, company events, and then help the business market what they've accomplished. I especially appreciated the Restaurant and Food chapter, which looks closely at the environmental as well as financial costs of food production.
The Glossary and Resources sections are excellent references. Worth having on the shelf for these alone!
