This book reminds me of the great Dummies series and the old Farmer's Alamanc. It's easy to read, full of clear charts and graphs, contains interesting facts, and best of all, it discusses where we've made environmental improvements and what still needs to be done. A great gift book for grads and young people.

The last reviewer has it right (i.e. this is a book for Dummies). This is not a science book and it's not written by an environmental scientist. But the author has no problem presenting chart after chart to say that "business as usual" is good, that we should keep investing in our fossil fuels, that climate change is a fiction and by the way, let's not worry about biodiversity losses because we don't know enough about them.

The Almanac is a must-have resource for anyone who wants to cut through the political spin surrounding the environmental debate and access the hard facts. This book puts the lie to many of the chicken-little arguments made by media sensationalists. Highly informative, this book is a well researched, beautifully written, fact-driven, and fascinating.

This book is fantastic. A great resource for anyone who wants to be armed with the facts when talking about the environment. Doomsdayers can scream all day long and push for new laws and regulations -- but it's mainly thanks to technology and economic growth that things are getting so much better. By virtually every measure, our air, water, forests, etc. are cleaner and healthier today than at any time in the last 30 years. A+.
