The Positive Deviant: Sustainability Leadership in a Perverse World: Sara Parkin: 9781849711180: Amazon.com: Books

I asked the librarian at work to buy this book for the collection. In my view, a well developed statement on developing sustainability leadership. Please find a copy in a library near you. The statement below is my review in response to a less than helpful review posted earlier on Amazon.

The Positive Deviant: Sustainability Leadership in a Perverse World: Sara Parkin: 9781849711180: Amazon.com: Books.

This book by life long sustainability leader Sara Parkin is a must read for those who are concerned with humanities fate as we overwhelm our Earths capacity to support our material economies. We need to remember that human economics is a subset of ecology, and that the environment does not need saving – we do!

This book, written in the context of a Masters Leadership programme, sets out a sound theoretical frame, then moves to leadership training and onto pragmatic action for leaders at every level and scale. The scientific back story is clearly developed with appropriate citations.
