Contents: "Eco-minimalism: the antidote to eco-boing reminds us that to build energy-efficient, ecologically benign and sustainable buildings is complex, comprising a set of interdependent factors influenced by little-understood science. The headline technologies, while legitimate in isolation, become less obvious in practice when context, building use, local climate, geology, economics, and many other influences come into play. The danger is that buildings are 'greenwashed' with eco-bling which is at best unnecessary and at worst counterproductive and ecologically damaging. This book exposes the pitfalls of such greenwashing in an immediate, visually-arresting and authoritative way. The quickfire format is based on 30 years of practical experience. Its central message is that eco-bling should be ditched in favour of 'eco-minimalism' --
the holistic, considered and appropriate deployment of building science in support of truly ecological, affordable sustainable architecture for everyone". --

The intention is to present basic tenets in a quickfire, highly accessible format that is deliberately not technical or in-depth.
