Customer Reviews

very enlightening  March 13, 2011

I probably won't be adding many textbooks, but I have read 90% of this one and it has truly enlightened me. This textbook emphasize natural capital, natural capital degradation, solutions, trade-offs, and the importance of individuals. The information presented was very interesting, and always up-to-date. There is lots of information, easy to understand. the authors make this relative to the modern person's life. The price beats what most college bookstores charge.

Environmental Science: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE will inspire and equip you to make a difference for the world. Featuring sustainability as their central theme, authors Tyler Miller and Scott Spoolman emphasize natural capital, natural capital degradation, solutions, trade-offs, and the importance of individuals. As a result, you will learn how nature works, how you interact with it, and how people have sustained—and can continue to sustain—our relationship with the earth by applying nature's lessons to economies and individual lifestyles. Engaging features like "Core Case Studies," "How Would You Vote" questions, and "Thinking About" exercises demonstrate the relevance of issues and encourage critical thinking. This edition has been updated with new learning tools, the latest content, and an enhanced art program.
