Book News Annotation:

The author, an architect specializing in sustainable design, also knows that people must balance resources, time, and budget, so her suggestions are practical and focused on helping readers identify what they need and what choices they can make that are environmentally sound. She provides case studies to illustrate various kinds of intent, process, strategies, and specifics. The book is abundantly illustrated with color photos and includes references; an index would have enhanced utility.
