Great idea about starting this group Jacqueline!


I quite enjoyed Future Fashion White Pages which is a collection of essays by various people within the fashion industry.
In the next few months I am going to be putting together the beginnings of the literature review for my thesis and will add some more full reviews.

Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing The Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything
Daniel Goleman
I gave it a 4-star
Information very comprehensive and transparent when it comes to some of the companies mentioned, their views on changing their buisness attitude and their new approaches to improving their ecological concepts in the making and distribution of their products. It does help with changing my perspective on what I wantr my business to become.

Hi all

A little bit of info for all new members

I have started a with a couple books and ask you all to please follow the format

1) add a discussion (as its easier for people to comment their thoughts back rather than on the comment wall)
2) add a picture of the book
3) make sure you title it with author
4) give your personal review on the book ( i took from amazon but please give your own as this was simply for example purposes)
5) your score card out of 5 please -
5 = excellent, 4 = very good, 3 = good, 2 = average, 1 = poor

and most importantly read, learn and enjoy! AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS to join too!!!
