This book clearly describes the methods and concepts in layperson's terms behind Ecological Footprinting. If you are interested in the subject at a personal or academic level then this book is a must. I used this book to help build a sustainability assessment computer model for an MSc dissertation and this research is hopefully to be published soon in a scientific journal. When studying the main criteria I had was to get ideas and information into my head as quickly as possible. This book is written in such a way that it achieves this very effectively - clear diagrams, metaphors, examples and writing. Everything is written to the point and honed in so that no time is wasted when reading it. A fantastic book packed with information and well done to the author Mathis Wackernagel for inventing (with Rees) such a well used and ground breaking method for measuring Ecological Footprinting.

Enhanced with figures, tables, summary "boxes", and more 23 May 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
In Sharing Nature's Interest: Ecological Footprints As An Indicator Of Sustainability, Nicky Chambers, Craig Simmons, and Mathis Wackernagel deftly collaborate to present the reader with a compendium of information on assessing ecology on a regional and a global basis through a process called 'ecological footprinting'. The informative text is enhanced with figures, tables, summary "boxes", a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a primer on thermodynamics, conversion tables, glossary, and an index. Sharing Nature's Interest is an important and highly recommended addition to personal, academic, and professional environmental studies reference collections and reading lists.
