This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jun 03, Hubert rated it liked it. More of a philosophical treatise on how to define sustainability more broadly. Gets into Heidegger, Maslow, other philosophers and psychologists. Rich book, but sometimes difficult to follow. Oct 30, Johnny rated it liked it. I tried hard to like this book.

I largely agree with the author's feelings and beliefs about sustainability. He is obviously very intelligent and thought a lot about the subject.
See a Problem?
The tone the author uses to address his audience is an interesting mix of academic and conversational, which generally feels sloppy, but is also sometimes refreshing when his passion comes through. My general complaint is there are way too few examples of what he actually means when he talks about "sustainable design". H I tried hard to like this book.

He harps on the toilet with two different kinds of flushes for the most part, and briefly mentions two or three or four others. Other than this, we are left with a highly abstract analysis, systems design and modeling. He actually relies on, and expands on, the models of others to a high degree. It makes for a very surreal experience to read his reinterpretations of the existing highly abstract models of others. In the end, I am left wondering what he is actually proposing. It is really quite vague. Maybe I am just too much of a utilitarian but I'd rather read about, say, how to build a greenhouse.
And I guess I also find sociological models particularly troubling, since there is really no way to validate them whatsoever, as the concepts and definitions that the models are built on are already abstractions with tenuous links to real phenomena. Aug 02, Duncan Noble rated it really liked it. If you're looking for a book to reassure you that the transition to a sustainable world will be easy, keep on looking. This book argues that we need to make fundamental changes in the way we see ourselves and our relation to others and to nature. Not an easy read.
Probably the deepest dive into the root causes of unsustainability that I have read. Ehrenfeld draws from many disciplines and that is his genius. This book made me think a lot. And made me question many things. I was already headed in If you're looking for a book to reassure you that the transition to a sustainable world will be easy, keep on looking. I was already headed in the same general direction as the author proposes.
This book is helping me on that journey.

Mar 10, Litbitch rated it liked it Shelves: There is some good analysis in here, and a nice theory of suggestions, if few practical ones. At times it was too squishy and emotional for me, but my biggest problem with the book is that his solutions do not rise to his understanding of the fundamental social and economic resistance to change. Our priorities are wrong, our social structure is destructive, and our economic practices are amoral at best, so Barely a scoot in the right direction, in my estimation.
Given, I read this in non-linear chunks over several months, so my recollection may be off. Sep 22, Troy rated it liked it. This is a great book, though in my opinion Ehrenfeld takes his analysis a little too far to the philosophical side at times, to be palatable to the lay reader. This works against the powerful message of his book as he will likely be dismissed as the stereotypical tree-hugging, granola-eating leftie often associated with the field.
That said, I think such philosophical considerations are certainly necessary to fully understand the idea or principle of sustainability, and I came away from this rea This is a great book, though in my opinion Ehrenfeld takes his analysis a little too far to the philosophical side at times, to be palatable to the lay reader. That said, I think such philosophical considerations are certainly necessary to fully understand the idea or principle of sustainability, and I came away from this read, more than anything, with an affirmation thereof. Sep 21, Kannan rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a difficult read and the longest I took to read odd pages.
But I guess scholars and academicians have the license to indulge and be abstract. This book will make you work and you may have to transcend levels to follow the author's thought process. The author makes a compelling, logical case for the need for a holistic approach to sustainability. It was totally worth it, and I have become a fan of the author and follow his blog at johnerhenfeld. Sep 02, Alexander Tomes rated it really liked it.
