With clear organization that matches the structure of industries, they do open the door for job seekers and life-changers to explore more thoroughly the opportunities from LED lighting to water-efficient technologies. Helpful definitions and tips abound, along with references to trade association websites, one of the most useful sources of real-world information. My only - little - complaint is an occasional gaga tone and heavy use of the "g-word" (green) - which is admittedly hard to avoid. You don't have to be an idiot - and I balk at that language - to appreciate this informative and upbeat guide.
