Carol McClelland does a wonderful job with this exciting new book, giving her readers the industry-centered information and resources they need to help begin the discovery of their very own green career niche. Highly recommended. -Jim Cassio, Author of the Green Careers Resource Guide and co-author of Green Careers: Choosing Work for a Sustainable Future
