This book is very well written, well researched, and the subjects covered are broad. It seems to compliment the instructor in my class very well. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is a lack of perspective re sustainability, i.e., human kind keeps surviving disasters, endemics, disease, etc., only to increase in population. At some point, the population will no longer be sustainable. While there are certain resources that are in limited supply today, I believe the book should have explored those resources that have the capability to be significant in terms of population limiting - now and in a future tense.

I bought the digital version because I was going to be traveling. I wonder if the illustrations, figures, tables, etc. are any good. I'll never know because most of them do not load on the Kindle reader. At least with a physical book, I could sell it to get my money back when I'm done. I will be highly skeptical of any digital textbook in the future.

This book is interesting but pretty dry in reading. There are some very interesting points made throughout however. The chapters have many supplemental stories to go along and explain concepts further.

This is the text book we used for our graduate level environmental and occupational health course. I was dreading this textbook because it is so large, and I was not looking forward to the course, I thought it was going to be SO boring. However, this textbook is excellent! It's well written, easy to read, and each chapter is organized well. I actually really enjoyed this textbook, and I'm not usually a textbook lover.

This book is a easy read & gives a good break down in each chapter. My professor used the discussion questions at the end of each chapter & those were a killer. Those question require further research outside of the book. I didn't like that at all!

Great quality book. Covers a wide range of environmental health issues. Works best as an overview, but does provide substantial detail on legislation, real-life examples, etc.
