Description
"[Daniel] Goleman, bestselling author of such groundbreaking works as Emotional Intelligence and Primal Leadership, brings his invaluable behavioral insights to our most urgent dilemma: how to halt environmental catastrophe. What's required, Goleman believes, is ecological intelligence, which he defines as understanding the 'hidden web of connections between human activity and nature's systems, and the subtle complexities of their intersections.' More concretely, Goleman encourages readers to learn about the many invisible threats to our health and the health of the environment caused by product manufacturing. Wisely focusing on the one element we can control, what we purchase, Goleman calls for higher 'green' standards and 'radical transparency' regarding how products are made. An enlightening foray into industrial ecology reveals how new forms of analysis determine precisely how the manufacture of such disparate items as toys, shampoo, and paper contributes to natural resource depletion, chemical pollution, and global warming. Brimming with intriguing, useful, and galvanizing information, this is an exceptionally sharp, innovative, and realistic approach to raising the demand for environmentally safe merchandise.... This fascinating treatise has tremendous potential for reaching and motivating a large and diverse audience."Booklist (starred review)
