I can't think of anything specific to disagree with that is in this book. OTOH, it seems mostly like generic generalized management advice with a sustainability flavor to parts of it. I suggest you read the author bio's (in the free Amazon.com free preview) to get a sense of the places that the authors are coming from etc. If you're looking for a book on some aspect of sustainability then you can probably do better elsewhere.

As a leadership development consultant and executive coach, I'm constantly on the lookout for good resources to help deepen my knowledge base around sustainability. A Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook is a welcome addition to more than a score of books on my growing sustainability shelf. Written by a collection of 29 authors, "The Enterprise Sustainability Action Team," with the shaping hand of editor Jeana Wirtenberg (with William Russell and David Lipsky), this learning community created a five part approach: 1) an introductory context setting overview, 2) the foundations of sustainable enterprises, 3) embracing and managing change sustainably, 4) connecting, integrating and aligning toward the future, and 5) when it all comes together - a concluding synthesis chapter. Within these five parts I found rich, pragmatic strategies that helped sharpen my own approaches for integrating sustainability into my professional work.

I also appreciated the visual denotations found throughout the collection of writings, indicating an Activity, Case example, or Tool. A glossary of terms in the appendix along with a healthy bio on each contributor rounded out a deeply accessible, user-friendly resource.

Each chapter within those five parts offered grounded strategies, intellectual provocations, social learning ideas, and an invitation to play - in order to address the historical global challenge of sustainability. What draws me to and keeps me engaged with a book on sustainability is an on-going experience of something new popping up and feeling immediately usable. In the first week after picking up TSEF, it bore the marks of a dog-eared reference book - with much underlining, margin notes, sticky tags, and newly sparked idea notations on the white pages at the end of the book. If my creativity is set in motion by models, case studies, and other concepts and information, then the book has been worth the investment - a threshold that was hit early on.

A macro conceptual underpinning of TSEF is the paradigm shift that the sustainability effort straddles. Going from global corporate capitalism's unsustainable way of producing and living to one that is more locally and democratically based, and putting nature in the center as a primary partner, locates this book as a timely bridge in a high stakes transition period of history. In this period of great challenge, there is also great anxiety. We have the choice of turning towards the challenges and transforming them into what is needed, or turning away and burying our heads. This book gives us the tools and concepts for turning towards and finding our whole selves and world in the process. As professionals and citizens, we need all the ideas we can muster, models, and case studies we can share to help us intelligibly navigate from a mindset built around scarcity and fear to one built around sufficiency and sustainability. It is in that sweet spot of possibility and concrete action that The Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook generously contributes its value, page after page.

"The boss came back from a seminar and said we need to be sustainable", "our green team needs to make the next step", "I need to provide better documentation to justify our sustainability efforts", are all statements that I hear routinely in presentations or as a part of general calls that come into the agency. This book provides a valuable resource as it serves admirably as a primer for the unintiated, a problem solver for the overwhelmed and a tool chest for the seasoned practitioner.

There are very few books that I will recommend when asked where to start, simply because organizations moving to the sustainability path are starting from such different places. This book provides a range of information to satisfy those diverse needs. It has all of the earmarks for being one of the books on your shelf with folded corners, highlights and tabs for the "go to" locations helping your organization explore, implement and share sustainable practices.

This book is a complete guide to moving towards sustainability. Rarely do authors assemble a comprehensive resource to reference at every stage of creating a more sustainable organization. The information is backed up by extensive research and is a great primary resource for understanding the characteristics and practices that successful businesses and organizations will have in the future. Whether you are starting a business or in an organization that is taking strides towards sustainability, this book must be within reach on your desk.

It becomes apparent early on that this isn't a quick read that you put back on the shelf. It is truly a "fieldbook" and a staple reference for anyone interested in the area of sustainability. It is equally as powerful a tool for students or others who are interested in learning the components of sustainability, its integration, and why it will be the paradigm for successful business now and in the future.

Companies need a sustainability roadmap

Having read The Sustainable Enterprise Fieldbook, it is clear that the authors are best positioned to help companies develop a realistic sustainability roadmap to support the triple bottom line of profits, people and the planet. The challenge ahead is to get this team in front of key business decision-makers as well as President-elect Obama's transition staff.

Furthermore, sustainable business practices are one of the keys to sustaining the tourism industry. Partnering with business to protect our environment will help to preserve our treasured tourist destinations. While often overlooked, Tourism is a significant contributor to global economic development. I suggest getting in touch with these authors and obtaining a copy of their book for those who are serious about achieving a sustainable future.
