"Savitz makes a lively and cogent case that no company or manager can afford any longer to ignore the world around them. A thoughtful guide for managers who still harbour doubts about the point of sustainability." —The Financial Times

"Required reading." —Fortune

"The main challenge of sustainability is how to take it from concept to action. Andy Savitz communicates in plain language what sustainability is and how everyone in the organization can help achieve it." —Charles O. Holliday Jr., chairman, Bank of America

"Andy Savitz gets it. He also happens to be witty, sensible, and a good writer as well as a good business strategist—sort of a modern Ben Franklin. That makes this book a joy to read as well as indispensable for businesspeople who wish to succeed in this new age." —Walter Isaacson, author, Steve Jobs

"Whether you are a corporate manager, investor, consumer, or public official, this book will change your view of how corporations can succeed for themselves and for society. Savitz combines vision and practical advice in an elegant presentation." —George Stephanopoulos, chief political correspondent, ABC News; anchor, This Week With George Stephanopoulos
