Anyone who reads this book will find that it is wonderful. I have only read a few chapters of if for a college course that I am taking, and am looking forward to reading more of it. The information included in the text was so easy to grasp and to remember. The author thinks about every little aspect concerning the issue and draws on it clearly so as to make sure that the reader understands each and every issue involved. This surely is a book for anyone who is interested in environmental issues and what causese those issues to come about and how much of an impact that we humans have on the planet.

Format: Paperback
This book was a required text for one of my courses. In the past I have not had the best experiences with texts that offer such broad overviews of topics, and as result, I was not looking forward to reading this book. However, I have found the book extremely well written with an abundance of references for additional reading and further research. Every chapter has inserts of up to date events that outline both the environmental and health effects of pollution on world populations. For example the chapter on "Water Pollution" (Ch. 15) at the same time that it identifies the many sources of water pollution it also provides the reader examples of water pollution on health; such as, describing in detail the how and why schistosomiasis infection rates have remained constant for the past 50 years affecting 250 million people globally. If you are interested on a well written introductory book on the environment and health, this is certainly a book to keep in mind.

Broad coverage of important topics in environmental health. Most important of all, it is very easy to read and grasp the points that the author is trying to make. It is comparatively much more readible than many other titles in the subject.

This was a recommended textbook for my environmental health class as a public health student. For someone who took this course not because I was extremely interested, but because it was required, this book did a great job of summarizing the consequences of environmental exposure on health while keeping it pretty interesting and without getting bogged down in inconsequential details. I kept it at the end of class and refer to it from time to time.

Format: Paperback
I used this textbook for a college class and found it disappointing. While this book is easy to read, it has much political bias and speculation throughout the book. Many of the illustrations are meaningless pictures and data that have little to no meaning without more information. The author's writing is not well-organized. She discusses one topic and then has additional important information on that topic in another section of the chapter.

I ordered a brand new book but instead I received well-preserved used book. I didn't know that until I started reading the chapters inside.
I paid for a new book not a used book. I really need this book for my exam so I don't have the time to turn it back and get a new one.
I really disappointed for this purchase.
