With photograph after photograph of I-wanna-live-there domiciles to lust after, Good Green Homes is loaded with inspiration. But it's also a solid reference guide as well, complete with a glossary of terms (impress your friends by throwing around terms like "hydronic radiant-floor heating system") and a list of published and Web resources. (Liz Stevens Fort Worth Star-Telegram 2003-11-01)
Good green homes can be any color, and are more mainstream by the minute. Robert teaches the reader all about sustainable building for a healthier planet via tours of real-world living spaces. A good glossary is included. (Judy Walker New Orleans Times-Picayune 2003-10-31)

If you are interested in learning about the different meanings of being green at the residential level, this is a great starting point.
There are books that will go into a lot more detail around specific areas, so it depends on if you are looking for a go over or deep details.
Second, it really does what it says -- it shows remarkably beautiful, remarkably 'normal' looking houses that incorporate earth-friendly materials, techniques and technologies.
It is great fun to sift through for ideas about that next remodel and that someday dream home.
I hope that building professionals read it, too -- it dispells a lot of myths about what one must sacrifice in order to have an environmentally-friendly home.
This book is a great combination of lovely to look at and a fascinating reference to read. I plan to have mine out for a while, for myself and (while I've never been one for coffee table books) for any friends who come over!
