Cities People Planet: Urban Development and Climate Change by Herbert Girardet
Cities People Planet: Urban Development and Climate Change

O2BLUE, November 2, 2009

A real eye opener that touches on every topic you can think of when it comes to making a more sustainable world. I share Girardet's passion for the environment so this book was an inspiration to me in many ways. Not only was it inspirational, it was educational; exploring the history of the first cities and urban developments and the effects these developments had on the health and prosperity of the people who inhabited them.

Fish!: A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results

O2BLUE, November 2, 2009

An excellent book! I read this book years ago as a request for all employees at the salon I was working at. This short but powerful story of the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, WA has left a lasting impression on my life. I highly recommend this book!
