Format: Hardcover
As an environmental engineer with a 25+ years actual practice, I have to say that this book is one of the best in the field. The book addresses almost (for not saying all) the environmental engineering field issues, adding the extremely-important environmental sustainability focus to our practice. "Old" principles (such as wastewater engineering and potable water treatment) are addressed, as well as the more-recent aspects. The focus of the book is practical; it does not enter into the "too-complex" issues that (in my opinion) do not help that much the actual practitioner. The book is excellent for both the environmental engineering student (the format is focused to the actual classroom, with exercises, problems, etc.), as well as for the experienced EE practitioners (which should acquire knowledge of the environmental sustainability field). Thanks to the authors and publishers for developing this book!!!!

If you're a UT student and are taking the environmental engineering course, you'll need to do a lot of internet searches, but it is still somewhat helpful. The professor's also take homework from it so...

I thought I was buying the book, turns out I was renting it and the company asked for it back out of the blue during finals week, my bad. I would suggest the e-book.

Rating text books is always a struggle for me, especially if I don't like the class. However, this book, in contrast to many other texts I've used, is quite helpful. There are a lot of examples in every chapter and they are very relevant to the problems assigned at the end of the chapter which makes it a lot easier to learn the material.

I was happy with the price of this book, can't find it any cheaper online. I found out that it was because the book is printed in black and white, but I was happy nonetheless.

My only issue was that the book came in an bubbled envelope and was dented up upon arrival.
