A Memorable Book

I first read this book decades ago when I was helping to start a video recording business. Paul Hawken impressed me with his business teachings, storytelling & most importantly, his humility.

The stories stayed in my memory & finding & reading it again is like getting reacquainted with an old friend.

Honest, Informative, Helpful


Any additional comments?

Great book if you're on a quick drive or long commute to and from work. Nothing super crazy here - just great, solid business advice from people who've done it. Nothing more.
