9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Bruce Hill on September 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Overall, it is a very useful textbook offering a generic approach to environmental audits which can easily be expanded to health, safety and security issues. The author(s) does a very thorough job in discussing the activities and protocols involved with the 3 phases of the auditing process: 1. Pre-audit Phase; 2. On-site Audit Phase; and 3. Post-Audit Phase. The textbook utilizes the input from several different authors which results in some duplication of information, but repetition is good in this much changing field.

Needs to be updated and expanded with respect to a few more current issues: Impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley law, current ISO 14001 issues, plus some others. A more detailed chapter on Root-Cause Analysis would be beneficial with more examples. This type of analysis seems to be the most prevalent in deciding upon Corrective Actions and Recommendations needed to mitigate future deficiencies of a similar nature.

An instructor's manual containing some general or specific discussion questions for each chapter would also be helpful. The references contained within each chapter are useful. Placing current "Insights" - articles or case law relevant to the chapter material would also enable the authors to keep current with fewer new chapters in subsequent editions. More sample examples of Audit Instruments (checklists) and detailed suggestions for Corrective Action follow-up would be useful.
This textbook is currently being used at the Master's level assuming little or no pre-requisite knowledge of the auditing process. It is being taught in on-campus and on-line classes.

While the text itself was great, the kindle version is lacking. For whatever reason there are no page numbers and there is no table of contents I can use to skip to a chapter or page. I end up having to flip through pages and try to make my own book marks just to jump to a different chapter. The lack of page numbers also makes it very difficult to cite the text in my papers.
Typically I prefer to have an electronic text book, but this time around I wish I had just ordered the physical copy.

Kindle version of this text book is worthless. There are no page numbers at all! If you are using this book for a master's course or any class, the kindle version will not work for you. They should have stated this up front in the description, now I have to wait for the hard copy of the text book to be delivered, all the while my class goes on....

Amazon, you should be all over this!
