Bill Wallace's book is the only "how to" manual in publication on sustainable development engineering. Not only does it define sustainable development from an engineering perspective, but it also provides companies a roadmap for creating a sustainable engineering practice. The book is loaded with examples of how companies and public agencies are adopting the principles of sustainable development and incorporating them into their projects. With hundreds of references and a CD linking the reader to key documents, organizations and software, the book is a tool kit for sustainability practitioners, saving literally thousands of hours of research and analysis.

  • By FriendofAbe on April 19, 2012

    This book is a complete absence of substance. This book was clearly some sort of 'slap the word sustainable on it and get it to market so we can capitalize on this sustainability fad' idea. The author got to put this on his resume that he is now an expert in engineering sustainability, despite having written that would have been more sustainable if it was never printed at all.
