This book provides a detailed model that provides guidance on how managers can implement sustainability at their companies. However, it is excellent not only for managers, but also for consumers who want to know what companies are doing or what they should be doing to improve their social and environmental responsibility. It is easy to read and contains many detailed real world examples to help readers understand what corporate sustainability is and how it should work at global companies.

Just a book for the author to try to make a few bucks. Same goes for the publishers. If you were ecofriendly, just post the book as pdf online, or at least make a paperback version.

I purchased the text as a guide for developing corporate sustainability guidelines. I found the author to be inaccurate in a number of places and his view of the business world is puerile. Obviously he is an academic with no real world experience beyond any benchmarking he has done in large companies.

For instance, page 107: "Given some of the characteristics of SMEs [small and medium enterprises] this approach to capital investment decisions is not surprising. Indeed, factors such as lack of financial expertise, short-term vision and shortage of capital partly explain their chosen approach." In fact many small companies are extremely well funded and run by CEOs and CFOs from large enterprises looking for a faster pace in a small enterprise. His assertions are equally absurd in many other parts of the book. The text makes assertions about accounting systems, with no apparent knowledge of GAAP, FASB, SOX or tax laws, tells the readers how GAAP "distorts" financial reporting.

With as many inaccuracies, lack of any real business knowledge, and the hostile or slanted view of business realities, I would not recommend this book to anybody who intends to us it as a serious guide to corporate sustainability.
