I just finished reading Do Good Design by David B. Berman and it was fantastic.
Generally the "green" design reading materials tend to put me to sleep about half way through but this book is not only well written but interesting. I was compelled to stay up until 2am to finish it. I would recommend taking the day or two to give this book a go, it will be worth it.
Here are some of the quotes from the book that stood out:
"But rather than sharing our cycles of style, consumption and chemical addictions, designers can use their professional power, persuasive skills and wisdom to help distribute ideas that the world really needs" David B. Berman
"Imagine again a society's potential where the largest signs, the cleverest ads, the most prominent messages promote healthy behaviors" David B. Berman
"Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future. Design is therefore responsible for the world our children will live in" R. L. Peters
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them"
"The next war will determine not what is right but what is left" H. Lubalin
