Professional Housebuilder and Property Developer

After writing a review for the (very readable) Professional Housebuilder and Property Developer, this is what they had to say about mine:

"Whatever your opinions on building sustainably, this book is a must-read, questioning themarch towards carbon zero and giving a refreshing alternative to the green agenda."

Lucy Dixon, Professional Housebuilder and Property Developer (October 2008).


Thanks to Barry York in Austrlia for this article:


Barry blogs at http://strangetimes.lastsuperpower.net/ and is involved in a very interesting "left-wing" group around Strange Times. I have had a number of fascinating conversations with Barry over the last few months and I certainly wish them all well - and a continued, recession-proof dialgue into 2009.

I have literally JUST received (after around 8 weeks waiting for trusty Amazon) a copy of David McMullen's book "Bright Future: Abundance and Progress in the 21st Century" which looks fascinating. The dustjacket says that there are three reasons to be reasonably positive about 21st century:
1. More and more poor people will become increasingly wealthy
2. "Environmental catastrophe will continue to not happen", and
3. Capitalism will lose its "historical mandate".

As they say, I can't wait to read it over Christmas.
