    Review - Sustainable Design: A Critical Guide

    I have a copy of the Sustainable Design: A Critical Guide.

    The book is new and has two 5-star reviews so far an amazon.com.

    Sustainable Design: A Critical Guide [Paperback]

    David Bergman (Author)
    5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)  Like(5)

    To me the ultimate test was what the author says about LEED.  

    Is he being critical of LEED?  Yes.

    But it has been criticized for devolving into more of a game in which racking up the most points sometimes takes precedence over producing the greenest building.

    The author does a good job of listing some other issues with LEED and makes a final point.

    Another criticism of LEED is that the certification process can be very expensive and time consuming.

    The author looks at many of the issues with a critics eye on what to do and why.

    If you are looking for a guide to greener/sustainable design, this book is worth checking out.
