Walter Isaacson, president and chief executive officer, Aspen Institute; former chairman and author, Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

"A bold and readable foray into this complex subject. Readers will come away enlightened."
Kert Davies, research director, Greenpeace US

John Elkington, founder and chief entrepreneur, SustainAbility

"Amidst the proliferating number of books on corporate sustainability topics, Savitz′s The Triple Bottom Line is a refreshing relief. Its accessible style, jargon–free language, and thematic organization avoids the tendency toward cheerleading and case study overdose characteristic of the field.  Savitz speaks with clarity, authority, and good humor."
