This book was so technical it was hard to follow. I am not majoring in engineering or in facility management, it's just one class required for my degree. I found that many of our assignments did not come from the textbook and we were just required to read from it.

The terminologies and presentation of information is directed towards a Facility Manager and easy to comprehend. If you are currently in the field and want to learn how your operations relate to sustainability this is the book for you. If you have aspirations to get into the field this is the information you will be dealing with and need to know. The author takes real world experience and knowledge and relates it to directly facility operations. I enjoyed the book and was able to relate my knowledge with each section.

This book contains a tremendous amount of valuable information for the facility manager looking to become a master of their craft or for the aspiring facilities management student such as myself. The topics covered in this book run the gamut from tried and true operational and management practices, the latest in green/sustainable technologies, financial analysis, to case studies where this technology is being successfully used today. The author conveys all of this information, which is taken from his extensive background, in a flowing, easy to read text. I will, without a doubt, utilize this text as a reference as I begin my facilities management career, you should too! Great read!

Great book for any Facilities Manager. Easy to read and follow, great overview of many different topics. This book will provide good reference material for a long time. Strongly recommend this book.
