Book Overview

Complex environmental problems are often reduced to an inappropriate level of simplicity. While this book does not seek to present a comprehensive scientific and technical coverage of all aspects of the subject matter, it makes the issues, ideas, and language of environmental engineering accessible and understandable to the nontechnical reader.Improvements introduced in the fourth edition include a complete rewrite of the chapters dealing with risk...

Environmental Pollution and Control textbook

This text is obviously a compilation of author's works. Some sections are extremely well written and organized. Other sections appear to be a scattered effort to address the topical issues related to the given section but with disjointed thoughts inserted so randomly that they appear to be simply an effort to check all of the boxes related to the given subject. It would be much easier to comprehend some of these sections if more tables, graphs, and bulleted lists were presented to make the desired points.

Good Balance

I continue to use this book as a practical and teaching resource. It is a good balance between the science and engineering aspects of environmental quality. The examples and problems are understandable for most undergraduates, and can be adapted to be more quantitative, if needed.

Complete, accurate and clear

I used this book as base for teaching of Environmental Technologies at university. It is really good, easy to follow and addresses the main aspects of environmental pollution control. The only aspect that it does not cover is soil pollution. One strong point: the figures, graphs, exercises are very good!

Excellent introduction to environmental pollution issues

This was a text book for my Environmental Security class. I learned a heckuva lot, and I really enjoyed reading it, too. It's well organized and helps you understand some technical issues relating to the environment without going over the non-technical major's head. The study/homework questions at the end of each chapter weren't too difficult and helped a lot in learning the material.
