Publisher Comments:

Explosion Green tells the twenty-year story of the global green building movement through the eyes of David Gottfried, the man who helped start it all.  Explosion Green reveals the inner workings of the building industry as it comes to grips with the need for environmentally friendly practices. It describes how the industry has evolved, and how this evolution has helped fight climate change and prevent further damage to the environment while creating a multibillion-dollar industry.  Filled with his unique insight and self-deprecating humor, Gottfrieds riveting memoir demonstrates how one person can start a global movement.
"Explosion Green" has won three 2014 Indie Book Awards: Second Place Grand Prize for Non-fiction, Business Category, and Memoir Category

Synopsis:

Explosion Green tells the twenty-year story of how the global green building movement exploded and transformed the worlds largest industry into a more robust business and environmentally-friendly marketplace, told through the eyes of David Gottfried, the man who helped start it all.  Explosion Green explores the workings of the industry, how its changed, and how these changes have helped and continue to help fight climate change and prevent further damage to the environment while creating enormous economic growth in a stagnant industry.  Explosion Green reveals how all global manufacturers are in the game - from building owners to design professionals, contractors, and facility managers, and explains the process of, not only how it started, but how they all work together towards ensuring future success of this industry.  Explosion Green permits an inside glimpse into the industry, educating all who want to not only learn how to be progressive with the environment while continue to pursue unrelated goals, but how to endure a start up, providing a chance to learn from the founder of one of the fastest growing nonprofits with the widest global reach today.
