“Sue Reed's book amounts to a conversation with the author who gently but inevitably convinces us to integrate thoughts about energy into all our concepts of action and beauty. She brilliantly focuses on the what and why of designing landscapes for the needs of users in the 21st century. Her poetic conclusive paragraphs should be required reading for all, and especially for landscape architects and designers.”
