I don't often like essay collections because I prefer more scientific or scholarly writings (I'm a nerd). However, this was a really broad collection. I expected for more redundancy than there is. For example there's a chapter about changing our perception of time and one about global economics. I have a pretty good knowledge of sustainability from a more geographic/economic perspective but I still found most of this book valuable. I would imagine that anyone with interest and even working knowledge will get something out of this book. ( )
