What are the top environmental books?

Just in time for slackers who haven’t finished their holiday shopping, Gristmill columnist Peter Madden of Forum for the Future has surveyed his colleagues and other smart green Brits to come up with a list of the most important environmental books.

Also surprising is what didn’t make the cut. Check out the top 10 and tell us if you think Madden and company nailed it or missed the mark.
