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.

This book was very educational and not because it was a required textbook for school. It was educational and helping me to understand more about the environment around me and how I can help to ensure our environment's longevity.

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.
