It's pretty good, however, it did take a month to arrive. Luckily, I brought it in advance of my exams. Book is still in good condition with some minor pencil notes in couple pages. Apart from that, bargain!

Thinking Deeply about the Environment, and Why it Matters 18 Aug. 2001
By picky reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read the first edition of this book (1993) and have no doubt that the third edition will surpass its scope and clarity. In a few hundred pages, Joseph Des Jardins unspools the thread of western philosophical tradition and makes it relevant for today's urgent environmental issues. Each chapter begins with a timely case study--salmon and economic develoment, nuclear waste and the rights of future generations to a clean environment--then develops the philosophical arguments required to more deeply understand just what is at stake in these and similar issues. Des Jardins' style is easy-going and eminently accessible. He wastes no words, gets to heart of the matter, and leaves the reader wanting more. Footnotes and additional readings lead to original material if the reader wants to delve more thoroughly into the topics. But you can just stop with Des Jardins if you are not a scholar, and still gain a firm grasp on how the big thinkers of western philosophy brought us to a critical divide in our environmental future. Edition One included late-breaking news from the social environmental and eco-feminist fronts, and I am confident the 2000 edition will be just as current.

Mind Blowing 1 Nov. 2012
By Patty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow, if you ever want to read a book that will really explain the ins and outs of ethics and how ethics relates to the environment - then you gotta get this book. I don't recommend reading this book curled up on the couch for a weekend. You are going to want to read it a chapter at a time and really reflect over what you have read - you know - mull it over a bit and really digest it. Be careful though - because it is one of those books that could change the way you view yourself and the world around you.

Interesting topics, very thought provoking 16 Sept. 2007
By Christine Robbins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book for an environmental ethics class, and found it to be very interesting! The many changes in our environment are truly thought-provoking, and to look at them through the eyes of an ethicist was enjoyable. The reading is compelling, and good fodder for many interesting dinner table conversations.

Absolute Gibberish! 14 Mar. 2010
By A. MacCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had to buy this 4th edition book for an environmental ethics class. I find the author's attempt to make the book long enough to be qualified as a text book down right PATHETIC. He adds way too many "big" words and unnecessary sentances. I'm sure he has some good points. But his endless babble will completely throw you off the trial, it's not worth the effort. It is a very difficult to read book, and even my professor admited that each chapter has to be read about 4 times to actually understand that point. Why my professor still uses this book is beyond me. By the way, this book is rediculously priced. I have to take this class for my environmental sustainability degree, but if that were't the case, you couldn't pay me $70 to read it. THIS BOOK IS A WASTE OF TIME.
