MEDIA REVIEWS
... an essential storehouse of knowledge for understanding the world around us and the sciences that investigate it. No educated person would think of trying to live a productive life without knowing the multiplication table, and no twenty-first century citizen should try to live an environmentally responsible life without the knowledge in this classic work
- Professor William L. Graf
University of South Carolina

Environmental science students embarking on their courses in this fast changing area will find this book to be an essential companion, for it provides a wide-ranging, up-to-date summary of all the crucial issues and concepts of which they will need to be aware
- Professor Andrew Goudie
University of Oxford

...a key text that should be on the introductory reading list for any undergraduate environmental science and/or physical geography student. It would be of particular benefit to students starting their studies in environmental science who have no background in the subject, including post-graduate students embarking on a masters' course. I shall certainly recommend that my students purchase a copy
