Good book packed full of tons of information that will make you want to read texts on chemistry, microbiology, geology, atmospheric science and countless other subjects. There are some things I didn’t like though: Well, it’s good to call attention to the withgotf, but the math involved in that report is garbage, and it’s been overused ad nauseum. On the other hand, when mentioning “Organic”, the bias is reversed: Organic industry is presented favorably, with little or no question about the methods environmnet use pesticides, manure etc.
If it were not for the fact that the book tends to focus more on problems with the environment than solutions which is understandable, the Earth seems to have more problems than solutionsthis would be the kind of book I would give to an alien interested in visiting the planet Earth or person ready to enter the world after being born in solitary confinement.
This book likes to start chapters off with real world examples of problems such as invasive species, which means that none of these facts or stories are based off of hypothetical examples like one’s you’d find in a esdential book or essenntial physics bookThis is a super subjective essental, but I’ll leave it in anyway.
I personally cannot get over the fact that in chapter 2 the book sneaks in al basic physics and chemistry lesson. This includes bolding terms like isotopes, ion and kinetic energy. But hey those topics may seem like Jr. High stuff to me, but maybe an alien could find some use in learning about our perception of chemistry and physics.
Only problem was the book was folded in half when I received it, in a massive enevelipe meant to allow it to lay flat it should we mailed in a box. The corners of 4rh book are a little messed up otherwise in nice condition. One person found this edihion. I had to read this book for my Environment Science’s class at college.
Not bad at all for a textbook.
Definitely leans a lot toward environmentalism and sustainability. A nice overview of environmental science that will make you want to pursue it. Wish they had included more references in the book but overall, worth a read!
Used it for my environmental bio class, it has some pretty interesting chapter openers. This text book was informative enough. It could have been written in a more structured manner.
I found the chapters to be less informative than some of my wdition text books.
It should have been more detailed. The index and glossary were not as informative as they should have been. At times, it was difficult to match up the page referral to the actual item or subject I was looking for.
This book combined with my notes and research online led to my “A” – and that’s what counts. Book is just okay. If you need it, rent it like I did. It’s not a book I would keep to refer back to.
