Summer Reading Giveaway Week 5!

EnoughIsEnough_Final_LoRes-200x300Summer is here! What does that mean? If your high school was like mine, it means stacks of summer reading. We here at TriplePundit work hard to bring you all the news you need to know about sustainability in business – and we do it all year round. But sometimes, let’s face it, you need to go deeper into a subject – and there are many great books to help you do that.

That’s why every week this summer, we’ll be giving away a CSR-related book to one lucky reader.

Last week’s book was The Nature of Business – Redesign for Resilience by Giles Hutchins. And the winner, chosen by random number generator, is Bruce E. Congratulations! Thanks to everyone else who entered. Still want some summer reading? Don’t give up, we have a brand new book to offer this week!

This week’s book is Enough Is Enough: Building a Sustainable Economy in a World of Finite Resources by Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill. Noam Chompsky called it, “A lucid, informed, and highly constructive book.”

From the publisher:

We’re overusing the earth’s finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill lay out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth—an economy where the goal is enough, not more.

They explore specific strategies to conserve natural resources, stabilize population, reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create jobs, and more—all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short-term profits. Filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.

You want it? You got it! Here are the 2 steps you need to take to enter:

2. Leave a comment describing why you want the book. If you are commenting as a guest, please use a real email address so we can reach you. You don’t have to display it publicly! Alternatively, let us know your twitter handle and we’ll contact you that way.

That’s it! The winner will be chosen at random from among all entries next Tuesday at noon pacific and announced next Wednesday when we publish the next book giveaway.
