Description of "60 Shades of Green"

The book is written in the style of stories on a variety of themes related to sustainability. These stories are driven by humor and satire.

One of the characteristics of this book is that knowledge is embedded the ‘stories’ in an implicit manner. Sometimes references are cited for further reading. Many of the articles in this book could therefore be of educational value to students as well as to teachers. The book could potentially be used as a supplement to a course on environmental management & sustainability. Further, some of the articles could be used to open up group discussions or formulate assignments.
