From the reviews:

“Bolstered with numerous case studies from around the world, Yudelson, one of the leading green building experts presents the case on why constructing new sustainable retail buildings and even converting existing structures to a more environmentally-friendly design is both good for the environment and for a company’s bottom line. … he provides useful suggestions for interiors and exteriors of commercial complexes. … the author also features a 10-point ‘action program’ for greening any retail real estate portfolio.” (The Compendium Newsletter, Vol. 38 (6), November-December, 2010)
