5.0 out of 5 stars Will pay for itself hundreds of times over Shane does a superb job of explaining the topics in his book. This is one of those books that is not a cost, but rather is an investment - and an investment that will have a huge return as the knowledge gained from this book will pay for itself hundreds of times over. Well worth reading!

Sustainability & The Future Proof Home
Building or buying a home is a huge investment, and the final product is one that lasts for decades, if not centuries. Have you explored all your options? Green homes can save you money in the long term, and provide security for your family even in the harshest winter climates. Shane explains how it's possible to own a more comfortable, environmentally responsible and energy efficient home without having to change your lifestyle.
Environmental Sustainability: Not All Solutions Are For Hippies
How do you feel about being dependent on a polluting, limited, and increasingly expensive commodity like fossil fuels? Shane illustrates how this dependence is built into our community infrastructure, how this will affect society in the future, and highlights some new technologies and solutions that will create jobs and environmental stability.
Thinking Green: And Economic Opportunity For Contractors & Industry
Sustainable buildings are a long-term asset for community development, but an educated public can only do so much; they need options when building energy efficient commercial and residential structures, and they need environmentally conscious, forward thinking builders and contractors to help them. Shane provides some tools and ideas to help the construction industry work in collaboration with their clients to build green - making construction profitable for people AND planet.
