I read an earlier edition for an environmental science class I took in college. I remember loving the textbook and learning a lot from it, which says something for someone who normally does not enjoy science. a thoughtful, intelligent, detailed book that is worth a read if you have any interest in the topic.
The etext was hard to follow as far as chapters. It's all laid out as sections. The instructor skipped around chapters a lot so that made it extra challenging.
Dropped the class.
Very useful book. teaches how to care for the environement1
It is a good text book. Very clear and consise.
