1. "The Humane Home: Easy Steps for Sustainable & Green Living" (Princeton Architectural Press, 2021) by Sarah Lozanova
This short, compact book would be useful to anyone building or renovating a home and wanting a general overview of how to do it with minimal impact. It contains seven chapters that cover topics like energy efficiency, water conservation, passive solar heat, building materials, air quality, choosing where to live, and even borrowing money from local credit unions to finance home purchases, as this "creates a symbiotic relationship between lender, borrower, and the larger community."
