This is the book world leaders should be talking about! In reWealth! they will find the path to revitalizing our economy, restoring our environment, and renewing the quality of our lives. For all the talk of change in this Presidential cycle, the candidates have all missed the economic sea change that Storm Cunningham has found and revealed in reWealth!
Bill Leary, former Director of Natural Resources, White House Council on Environmental Quality
The world recently surpassed seven billion people. Over 60 percent of our global ecosystems are designated as degraded or are being used at an unsustainable rate.
One can only imagine the nightmarish conditions of the planet if UN forecasts of 9 billion by 2050 and over 10 billion by 2100 come to be. It is time to bury the old sustainability myth and get on with the bold new regenerative vision and blueprint presented in Storm Cunningham’s insightful and thought-provoking book, reWealth. If you are looking for a proven strategy to create healthier, wealthier communities... reWealth is the bible of community revitalization and natural resources restoration.
Chuck Hegberg, Dir. Environmental Services, Navarro & Wright Engineers
reWealth is the secret weapon of responsible redevelopers, successful real estate investors, and effective community leaders. Storm Cunningham was ahead of his time when his modern classic, The Restoration Economy, was published in 2002. Now, we see national economic stimulus efforts focused on infrastructure renewal, nature restoration, brownfields redevelopment, adaptive reuse, and community regeneration.
In reWealth, we have a blueprint for economic recovery at both local and global scales. It's THE book on bringing places back to life: the first rigorous, systematic, proven approach to urban and rural revitalization. Individual and institutional investors who read reWealth will expand their grasp of many abundant opportunities for a renewed future.
With reWealth, Cunningham firmly cements his reputation as the world’s thought leader on community revitalization and natural resource restoration.
George L. Ochs, Managing Director, Global Real Assets, JP Morgan (London)
All national politicians and community leaders should be forced to read reWealth: it's the best book that I have encountered on this subject. Full of common sense. I consider Storm Cunningham the global thought-leader on growing economies in a way that improves quality of life for all, while simultaneously repairing our damaged natural environment.

Storm's vision is extremely important for us and for the next generations. Everyone who cares about our globe has to listen to him. This can make a difference!

reWealth is an energizing book. For the practitioner and restoration advocate, reWealth provides a refreshing read. However, the book's place is clearly with decision makers, from the corporate to political sectors. ...Development agencies and the resources sector will find Cunningham's arguments...compelling, profitable, and downright necessary. ...reWealth demonstrates that to keep taking from the natural resource base without returning restoration benefits is flawed economic as well as environmental thinking. reWealth represents enduring principles...enlightening.
Kingsley Dixon, Director of Science at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, West Perth, Western Australia, and Permanent Visiting Professor
Storm Cunningham has a flair for taking weighty subjects and discussing them in an entertaining, accessible way. ...One chapter should be particularly appealing at the moment. It's entitled 'Good partnerships: how to renew on a grand scale when you're broke.' ...a way for communities to take charge of their own regeneration. Buy the book and all will be revealed.
book review in May 2009 New Start magazine (UK) by editor Austin Macauley
With the passion and commitment of his first book , The Restoration Economy... Cunningham...continues to document the ways in which the trend to restore and make communities more sustainable is impacting the world's future.... Based on his professional experiences in economic development and revitalization, the author saliently argues that organizational profitability and wealth creation are compatible with a sustainable global economy and that sustainability should be an integral component of today's leadership culture. From the protection of ecosystems to the restoration and reconstruction of infrastructures, Cunningham offers a unique perspective, chronicling the impact of the restoration paradigm on global well-being. As he documents the actual achievements of individuals and organizations, he identifies the principles, processes, and model that appear to be the paradigms of a successful "rewealth" initiative... Recommended (for) general readers, all levels of undergraduate students, and practitioners.
Dr. S.R. Kahn, Professor of Accounting, University of Cincinnati
Very inspiring. Very realistic. Very articulate. And full of very useful, valuable information.
Udaya Sharma, CEO, Resource Development Initiative Center (RDIC), Kathmandu, Nepal.
Cutting-edge academic programs in business, engineering, planning, environment, and public policy must put reWealth! on their required reading lists! Rewealth is our future, and a surprisingly large part of our present. This book is a powerful revelation and an action strategy for students, faculty, and working professionals alike.
Bill Humber, Director, Centre for the Built Environment, Seneca College
Compelling, urgent, and full of opportunity... anybody who has an interest in business and/or the environment will want this book. It would take a complete fool to put it back on the bookstore shelf.
Todd Latham, publisher, ReNew Canada magazine
Revitalization guru Storm Cunningham's new book contains your future.
reWealth! offers construction industry practitioners an edge as the world economy moves into uncertain times. I was hooked by the time I'd finished the Introduction.
Will "Korky" Koroluk, Construction Columnist, Daily Commercial News
Thought-provoking, insightful, and hopeful. In an age of climate change, destructive development, and species extinction, reWealth! points to us to a new paradigm of restoration and replenishment. reWealth! is a fundamental rethinking of our economic models and the way we grow our cities. Sustainability is but a step along the path towards restoration; Cunningham does a fantastic job of illuminating this new path to global renewal.
Barry Patterson, Biomimicry Guild
Storm Cunningham's new book, reWealth!, is sure to be well purchased and widely read...especially here in Ontario, where he has gained such a solid reputation.
Wayne A. Dawson, Vice President, Ontario Region, Cement Association of Canada
One of the best sources for stimulating the right type of strategic thinking I've found are the stories told by Storm Cunningham in his new book, reWealth! ...Focusing on redevelopment and renewal draws us closer to sustainability's value promise: Solving multiple problems with single, elegant solutions.
Nina Winham, MBA, a principal of New Climate Strategies, and a former CBC Radio journalist
Every business and government executive in the world needs to read this book twice! Storm Cunningham has written an absolutely brilliant book that is a prescient look at what real sustainability will require. He tells tale after tale of the leaders of business and government who found ways to profit while fixing watersheds, revitalizing waterfronts, improving schools, cleaning up toxic waste sites, repairing national economies, and much more.
These days, millions think that they are "green" or "sustainable" because they buy organic Cheetos and two dollars of carbon offset on some website. Meanwhile, the real work of ecological sustainability remains for future generations. This 'real' work will involve changing the way business is done by fixing up broken systems and making a profit at the same time. Not an easy task - but luckily one man has a clear vision to offer us.
While the current "green movement" is stuck in telling us what NOT to do, Cunningham gives us an expert guide of what we CAN do to improve our world and even make a few bucks. reWealth! is a visionary book that offers a real path to profitable sustainability.
