CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 '...it is [the] multiplicity of expertise which makes this book so valuable. Rather than being a quick summary on the environment and business by one author, the book requires close study on specialist areas such as sustainability, marketing and investment, to cite just a few. Firm and careful editing renders the book a cohesive whole, with boxes for case studies and conclusions, and numerous graphs appearing throughout.' - Gordon Harris, Professional Manager
