This wasn't a very easy read. The text was very redundant. However, the basic information and the examples are excellent. If you are interested in building a green roof, this is a good starting resource.

Interesting with a lot of case studies, but could of used a bit more specific detail for the diy-er.

Abandoned the reading and just looked at pictures. I agree with Kelley 's review, it is not easy to read.
