When I work from home I sit in my tiny, but cosy, home office. Surrounded by countless number of books behind me in the bookcases behind me. Many books are about my study International Relations, about management, some novels and a lot of cookbooks. But there is also a lot of space on the bookshelves about sustainability. In this book I share my top list of books about sustainability that helped me to get a better understanding of sustainability, the importance of sustainability, a sustainable lifestyle, running a sustainable business, sustainable economics and others.
