--Utne Reader

"Considered by way of so much to be the dean of ecological economics, Herman E. Daly elegantly topples many shibboleths in Beyond Growth. Daly demanding situations the traditional inspiration that development is often solid, and he greenbacks environmentalist orthodoxy, arguing that the present specialise in 'sustainable improvement' is faulty and that the word itself has turn into meaningless."
--Mother Jones

"In Beyond Growth, . . . [Daly] derides the concept that of 'sustainable progress' as an oxymoron. . . . Calling Mr. Daly 'an unsung hero,' Robert Goodland, the area Bank's best environmental adviser, says, 'He has been a voice crying within the wilderness.'" 
--G. Pascal Zachary, The Wall road Journal

--David W. Orr, Oberlin College

"There is not any extra simple moral query than the only Herman Daly is asking." 
--Hal Kahn, The San Jose Mercury News
