Van Jones, the San Francisco activist behind Green for All, who is working to get green-collar jobs placed in low-income neighborhoods (two birds, one stone), has been getting a lot of attention lately. We profiled him in GOOD 010 (which you can read here) and he was recently featured in Time. And now, to top it all off, the guy has a book out.

Best of luck to him.
