"The Sustainability Bookstore brings together all the books that do the best job of covering community sustainability," said Andre Shashaty, president of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities® the nonprofit that operates the online store.

Books available at the Sustainability Bookstore cover community planning, urban policy, land use, real estate development, sustainability, affordable housing, and housing finance. The selections include books by leading authors on smart growth and sustainability, such as Andres Duany. “We are always scanning new releases, reviewing them and adding the best of the bunch to our inventory,” Shashaty said.
