This new book, Balancing Green, does it. It is deep and technically credible, but also readable and loaded with familiar names and stories. Most importantly, it tackles the question of sustainability without a preconceived agenda.

Sheffi and Blanco have tackled this question more deeply and fairly than anyone I’ve seen. (Also published in FORBES)
