This book certainly lives up to the title - all the key ideas in ecology with simple explanations. It includes useful details about the key figures, timelines and organisations and provides easy to understand descriptions of what they mean and why they're important.

If all you want are basic summaries of key concepts then this is fine, but I was left unsatisfied by the lack of depth and the duplicate information on many overlapping sections. As a quick reference guide to look up a specific concept I suppose it does the job, but as a way of getting an introduction to ecology in general I'm not sure I'd recommend this.

Dylan Mazur I'm reading it right now and there is a lot of repeating ideas and information compared to the psychology and philosophy books I read from the same series which seemed to present entirely new ideas on every page.
