Following on from two previous titles published on Factor X by the Umweltbundesamt (German Environment Agency), entitled “Factor X: Policy, Strategies and Instruments for a Sustainable Resource Use” (2013) and “Factor X: Re-source – Designing the Recycling Society” (2014), this book further investigates how savings in natural resources and resource efficiency improvements could be achieved, focusing on good practice examples that cover different resource categories, pursue different efficiency strategies and come from different sectors, e.g. innovative products or services, technology, management approaches, systemic approaches, etc.
The background against which this work is done has a highly comprehensive span, from the first Declaration of the Factor X Club in the nineties, to the European Commission’s Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe that was published in September 2011, through to the German Federal government’s German Resource Efficiency Programme (ProgRess I and II) in 2012 and 2016, the G7 Alliance for Resource Efficiency, and most recently the development and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

“The author, Angie Davis, has been a friend of mine for thirty years. I have seen her grow in faith and wisdom over the years and learn to share what gifts God has given her. She is a faithful servant of the Lord and is a walking, living, breathing, testimony to how He speaks to her in everyday life. I treasure our friendship and have been blessed by her presence in my life. God has blessed her with the gift of writing, and I pray that her devotions will bless others the way they have blessed me.”
—Pam Heidig, homemaker, artist
“I read something from Angie Davis every day. She writes devotions from real life experience that reflects a true Christian walk, whether the road is rocky or smooth. To say I receive encouragement from Angie is an understatement. It is obvious God is using her in the lives of others through her writing.”
—Jennifer Lehman, stay-at-home-mom, musician

Weird and Wonderful chronicles the evolution of the dime museum from its eighteenth-century inception as a "cabinet of curiosities" to its death at the hands of new amusement technologies in the early twentieth century. From big theaters which accommodated audiences of three thousand to meager converted storefronts exhibiting petrified wood and living anomalies, this study vividly reanimates the array of museums, exhibits, and performances that make up this entertainment institution. Tracing the scattered legacy of the dime museum from vaudeville theater to Ripley's museum to the talk show spectacles of today, Dennett makes a significant contribution to the history of American popular entertainment.
