Product description

Review

'I recently read an excellent book about another key factor: how we make stuff. The book is called 'Sustainable Materials', by a team at the University of Cambridge led by researchers Julian Allwood and Jonathan Cullen. (...) The book's message is clear and convincing: We can't go on using materials the way we have been for the past 150 years, but fortunately, we don t have to. (...) I've read other books about steel, but none of them featured a photo of the Carhenge exhibit in Nebraska. I've read a lot of books about physics, but I don't remember seeing such an extended riff on how atoms act like people dancing in a nightclub. ' --from Bill Gates's blog: https://www.gatesnotes.com/Books/Sustainable-Materials-With-Both-Eyes-Open
