Very good textbook about enviroment March 17, 2011
It's a very useful book, clear and concise, like a high school book. It is very well written and easy to understand. I feel it is an excellent learning tool for learning about the environment. This is an excellent book for those that do not know much about the environment and what we can do to improve our own environment. I rented it for a college class. I would recommend it.
