a comprehensive document and despite much further reading I have yet to find a strategy elsewhere not mentioned in this book. --Amazon UK
Charged to select three books for people interested in teaching themselves ... architecture, ... I would choose Sun, Wind & Light to teach the processes architects should use. ...an inspirational book.
This book is an obvious choice as a textbook on climate-responsive design, but it should also serve as a valuable reference for anyone designing buildings with climate in mind. --Environmental Building News
Great book to study for sustainable architecture. Gives details on how to design for particular climates and regions. Filled with helpful charts and graphs to decipher for seasons and times of the day according to each climate. --Alibris
"No architect should neglect to follow the advice that it gives." (Center for Education in the Built Environment, August 2002)

i cannot make a good evaluation at the moment as i am still trying to understand the book.
How ever at first glance it seems to give a lot of insight on sustainable strategies . the book build feels very delicate but the steel ring allows for complete 180 deg page flipping.
