    What a disappointment.

    The information in the book is not new nor innovative. Everything can be found on the internet with a little research on your own. The book leads you to believe it is good for all professionals but it is really only for those already in the field, who presumably should already know where they fit in, not for those in fields looking to enter the field creatively using their skills.

    Overview of the Green Industry

    I found this book to be very helpful during my job searching process. It was an excellent summary of all the occupations that can possibly arise from the ever expanding Green Industry. It encouraged me to decide to go back to school for a Master's degree in Urban Planning.

    a gift for my 20 yr son

    I'm purchasing and sending this green-collar book to my son whom has no direction in his life. I'm hoping that he and his g-friend will find enlightenment and direction in their lives. I'll do a follow up in a month.
