Brilliant lecturer and green architect Eric Corey Freed with accomplished marketer and Inc. 500 entrepreneur Kevin Daum have co-authored the perfect book for now. Smart, insightful, logical and USEful. This may be the easiest guide to follow in green building. It is so well presented (no more than 6 pgs per topic) that anyone with the slightest interest in trying to do the right thing can get a solid sense of how a project would unfold, its practicality, and its greater importance making our buildings and life more sustainable. Recommended for the family handyman and the government city planner...and for legislators to see that we could certainly use more tax or rebate incentives to help inspire truly logical home improvements. Thank you, Eric and Kevin!

It is obvious that a tremendous amount of thought went into this book and it is extremely well organized. There is something for all of us to do in this book. Eric has a way of making green accessible to everyone and he and Kevin have done a fantastic job simplifying "Green Home Projects". He makes the reader not only understand the process but motivates us to take action. I applaud them for their efforts.

I was looking for a source that could help me understand the value/benefit of specific green building systems and products. The book is very well organized so it was easy to look for the information I needed.

Additionally, the wrap-up at the end of each chapter explains the dollar value as well as the green value/benefit to the earth. The conclusion to the chapter also gives a difficulty rating. That, in itself, would have made the book worth purchasing!

This is a must read for people looking to modify their home or build a new home and are thinking about "going green." The title says it all -- GreenSense for the Home: the Real Payoff from 50 Green Home Projects

A good read in my opinion. This book would be especially helpful for green-conscious remodeling. Lots of great ideas old and new. The dual authors do a great job of describing what each project will do for your home and the environment, but the best part is the cost analysis that describes the added value to your home for each project.

If you are looking for a nice overview of ways to save money on your utilities and heating and cooling costs while also reducing your carbon footprint, then you will enjoy this book.

The authors put this book together extremely well. It is broken down into three sections based on the complexity and time involved of each task. While they give you some really great, simple ideas with DIY detail in the first section, most of the more complicated ideas discussed in the book will take some extra thought and planning than what is in the book. A good guidebook to give you some ideas and provoke thought on what you can do to maximize the potential of your home.
