For sustainability champions: my book is now in Dutch, French, Italian, Portuguese and Polish.

4a701ae59f65f4.84703029.pngRule one in book publishing (where I worked for ten years) is: promote your own book, because nobody else will do so with as much energy and commitment. So, sorry to be brash, but please note the following:
Today I received printed copies from its publisher, SUN, of Plan B – the Dutch version of my book In The Bubble; (the latter was published by MIT Press in 2005).
For the Dutch and all the other language versions mentioned here, I reduced the original text to 45,000 words – but also added five new chapters. on: Sustainability; Metrics; Food; Development; and Telepresence.
Here are three ways you can help Plan B reach sustainability champions:


a) send the name and co-ordinates of Dutch-speaking journalists, bloggers and thought-leaders (to whom you think we should send a free review copy) to Marlies Dijkstra; her address is m.dijkstra at uitgeverijsun dot nl
b) go to the SUN website and order copies for all your Dutch-speaking friends in The Netherlands and around the world. If you are a sustainability champion within your company, university, city, or government department, consider ordering 100 or more copies for a discount, and send copies to your colleagues;
c) announce on appropriate mailing lists that the book is available
Here again is the French edition translated by Anne Despond-Barre and published by Marc Partouche for Cite du Design Editions.

    The cover of the French edition is lovely. But where can we get ahold of those 3 new chapters in English?
    Andrew: I’ll post them here as soon as I’ve cleared things with MIT Press. John
