MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"It suggests methods and tools to achieve our aim of total sustainability. The book has been written in a very clear, readable and user friendly style. The distinguishing features of the book would be the numerous appropriate case studies appearing throughout the book and the internet references appearing at the end of the chapter. ... The book contains many helpful tables. ... this would be a useful introductory effort that will appeal to decision makers and workers in different spheres of environmental activities." (V. Lakshminarayanan, Journal of Ecobiology, Vol. 18 (2), 2006)
