From the back cover (including review quotes):

In just 49 pages, this little book helps you “lift your thoughts above the fray” (Michael Kensler, Auburn University) and rethink what it means to do sustainability work. Alan AtKisson, recognized as one of the pioneers of sustainability consulting, author of the bestselling Believing Cassandra and The Sustainability Transformation, brings 25 years of international experience into crystal clear focus with a refreshing message of simplification and renewal. He also introduces useful new concepts such as “Sustainability, Big and Small” and “Take-out Sustainability.” Highly recommended for all sustainability professionals, amateurs, and students alike.
