Their book is an easily accessible overview of sustainability that is relevant for the practicing logistics manager." ( Craig Carter, Associate Professor, Supply Chain Management, Arizona State University, USA)
"The design of the whole book is very user-helpful, with tables, boxed examples from successful firms, graphs, lists, matrices, bar-charts, pie-charts, flow-charts, and what they intriguingly call a 'radar chart'. At the end of every chapter is a useful summary, and a first reading would benefit by simply reading these for a rich foretaste of the detailed content. [...] It is really a handbook, a do-it-yourself guide for supply chain managers, clearly explained, and not avoiding the problems of implementation" ( Ms Piyawan Puttibarncharoensri - Director, MSc Programme in Supply Chain Management, Assumption University of Thailand, in Review in Journal of Supply Chain Management)
