10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By David G. Woodcock on November 18, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Jean Carroon has been practicing green conservation for years, her projects have attracted positive acclaim and professional awards, and her performance on the lecture circuit and in symposia has made her a 'must have' for many audiences, and a powerful advocate for the integration of green technology, and even more importantly comprehensive and inter-disciplinary approaches to preservation as a sustainable practice. The book as a gold-mine of ideas, and supported by outstanding case studies. A 'must' for the practitioner and the academic.

While there is a ton of popular press (National Trust, for one) about the connections between preservation and sustainability, and there's a good number of factual studies, there isn't a lot that strikes the balance between the two -- what you need to know about these two inter-related fields to practically apply the information to your professional life. This is a worthwhile read for those in CRM, preservationists, engineers, architects, building scientists, and students of all those fields (and probably a few more). If we are not sustainable, we soon just will not be.

It's also incredibly readable for a textbook. Carroon's writing is never dry.

By Richard Monahon AIA on January 21, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Jean Carroon has hit the right note with her timely book. She helps those of us in the world of preservation and sustainable design thread the not always easy path between the regulatory conflicts inherent in two areas of practice which often are at odds. Her writing is clear and convincing and will be of value to the profession and the public. A whole new book with more examples and more narratives of conflict resolution is called for as the recent years have seen so many noble attempts to not only "beat the drum" but also to "go to the mat" for best practices in this complex game for owners, architects and regulators.
