Really nice book. Though bought as a used one, it is a 99% new book!

On the positive side this book is a comprehensive book presenting an introduction into all important aspects of environmental pollution. On the negative side the text presents many facts in form of anecdotal evidence and through quoting personal statements from fellow academics, however without sufficiently backing up these very statements with figures or other evidence. A table or figure confirming through numerical values from peer-reviewed literature the assessed impact of a certain type of pollution, for instance, carries more weight than a quoted personal statement from an academic, who is unknown to me. A further drawback of the book is the exclusively U.S.-centred view of pollution issues. The book is nearly unusable as teaching material outside the United States due to this strong focus on U.S. legislation and U.S. specific pollution issues.
