Review

Praise for Practicing Sustainability: "Delightful...the chapters are gems of precision and insight."-Michael Spence, Nobel Prize Winner in Economics "This book so aptly demonstrates [that] the concept of sustainability can be applied to many different areas, which could be woven together into a sustainability agenda."-Robert Rubin, Co-Chairman, Council on Foreign Relations, and Former U.S. Secretary of Treasury "Seminal...a thoughtful and refreshingly different book."-Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum "Mahatma Gandhi once said 'unsustainable lifestyles and unacceptable poverty should become problems of the past, to achieve harmony with nature and with each other.' Practicing Sustainability not only brings out the relevance of this vision clearly, but also the need to develop better concepts and pathways to achieve that vision."-M.S. Swaminathan, World Food Prize Laureate and Member of Parliament, India "An enlightening book that demystifies what sustainability really means with a fresh, unusual range of voices and practical insights. Practicing Sustainability should be read by anyone who cares about the future of our planet."-Neal Lane, Former Director, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the U.S. National Science Foundation. "In this unique collection, each reader will find three or four sparks-things that will connect with their head or heart or both, and perhaps spur them to real action. It's a necessary book!"-Bill McKibben, Founder, 350.org, and author of The End of Nature, Deep Economy, and Eaarth. "Practicing Sustainability is an engaging and ultimately uplifting kaleidoscope of ideas from the people on the front lines of building a better planet."-Greg Ip, author of The Little Book of Economics "The popularity of "sustainability" has taken a toll on its meaning-it is too often used as a lofty aspiration or as a vague objective. This book provides a great antidote to this trend. Practicing Sustainability is a must-read for anyone looking for good ideas on how to make sustainability more real and concrete."-Moises Naim, Senior Associate, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Chief International Columnist, El Pais; Former Editor-in-Chief, Foreign Policy "An important book that contributes greatly to the understanding and practice of sustainability in a comprehensive, lucid, and thoughtful way."-Shu Chien, National Medal of Science Laureate; University Professor of Bioengineering and Medicine, University of California, San Diego
