Earlier this year my colleague Simon Cocking reviewed the book Practical sustainability, circular commerce, smarter spaces and happier humans. Written by Corey Glickman and Jeff Kavanaugh, the book shares specific examples and case studies as well as reinforcing the concepts outlined by the authors.
