To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book is incredibly well written and very interesting. I knew quite a bit about sustainability, but I needed a reminder about the key concept.
The one thing that is not helpfull is that the all pages one by one are all falling apart and I will need to buy a separate folder to keep it all together. I could not find a way to contact Amazon to tell them about it!
Book pages have fallen out, some of the pages in the middle of the book have come loose and fallen out. Book pages are shiny and hard to read in direct sunlight. Great content and maps and diagrams. I am really enjoying the content of the book.
The content appears to be well researched and provides lots of data and figures. It is feasible to get a quick overview in historic development of environmental impacts combined with population growth and major industrial impacts. Content valuation I would put five stars *****
As I aimed to use the book as quick-reference book it points out a totally disappointing mechanical binding of the book - after only one time reading, r.a. 50% of the pages loosened from the binding. That means, that after only a few days you will have a small mountain of loose pages. For that I put only one star *
Very well-written book, covering all the essentials of what you need to know about sustainable development, up to the SDG. Companion materials available online are helpful, especially if you want to use it as a textbook.
It sometimes relies too much on anecdotes rather than general policy advice, though, and I found a couple of factual mistakes (nothing serious). Also, environmental policies (and instruments) get short shrift, so not 5-stars.
It is a very interesting book with some great information and stats, but you can only read it once. The book binding is very poor and the book started losing pages even before I had read them. So the ebook would be a way better option.
