This book contains a slew of essays from notables in the progressive environmental movement: the Lovins, John Todd, Paul Hawken, Janine Benyus, Wes Jackson, on and on.
This is an excellent entry point for folks interested in ecological disciplines (design, economics, agriculture, etc.).

I highly recommend it!
