Nominated books are judged by the AHS Book Award Committee on qualities such as writing style, authority, accuracy, and physical quality. One committee member praised Falk’s book as “a thought-provoking and comprehensive resource, unlike anything else out there on the subject of sustainable living.” We couldn’t agree more.
