CRADLE TO CRADLE Remaking the Way We Make Things

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

This manifesto of "eco-effectiveness" is one of the overlooked gems in environmental literature. Most environmental pollution is, according to the authors, the result of poor design. Products can be designed to serve their function and, once discarded, to nourish the biosphere or provide high-quality materials for technical production. In a wonderfully clear (if occasionally singsong) voice, Stephen Hoye does much to present the sometimes-challenging material at a pace the listener can absorb. The audiobook is not always the best format for these visual thinkers. Their "eco-effectiveness fractal" diagram is available from the Tantor Media Web site. Once you've decided to listen to the book, you can download it and carry it with you. F.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
