The Green Building Revolution, a Book Giveaway

Greenbuildingrevolution I really hate to do this, but I’m giving away a new, autographed copy of a book that I really like.  You know the drill:  leave a comment, and after 48 hours, I’ll pick a winner based on the number of your comment.*  This book is particularly hard to let go, because I keep referring back to it for different pieces of information.  It’s called The Green Building Revolution by Jerry Yudelson.  Yudelson is a serious expert in the industry and maintains an information-rich website at — plug it into the feed, you’ll be happy you did.  The book itself is loaded up with information, but it’s not a chore to read.  It’s accessible on the one hand and super thorough on the other.  Seems hard to do, but Yudelson finds a way to deliver the straight facts without leaving you lost.  Particularly, I was engrossed by three chapters:  the business case for green buildings, the costs of green buildings, and the future of green buildings.  He delivers a compelling case for green buildings and our future, and it’s not just about the money. 

*Open commenting ends at the end of the day on Saturday, midnight MST.  Say anything you want, but if you’re shy or don’t know what to say, tell us where you’re from.  Ex: Salt Lake City, Utah in the green house.  Offer only available in the U.S. for shipping reasons.  Shipping is on me.  I will email you for a mailing address and after shipping it, the winner will be announced in the comments.

    That book sounds excellent, I would love a copy. I am a senior in the Landscape Architecture program at Ohio State, and we are currently designing sustainable systems. I have been scouring the web and libraries looking for a condensed source such as this. I graduate in June and will be heading into the real world, hoping to design everything I get my hands on as green as possible. This would be great!

    I just read this but realized this post is from 2008. No one had posted anything so I was wondering if there is still a chance I can get this copy (even though is 4 years later…)
    I am a second year student and I am researching green infrastructures. This book looks amazing-  I want it  :)

    Let me know please.
