Editorial Reviews

Review

"I will definitely adopt this textbook. As far as I am concerned, this is an absolute winner." "Unlike many other textbooks, THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN FOR STUDENTS." "This book is clearer and more student-friendly than any other book on environmental geochemistry that I am aware of."

"I will adopt this book as my textbook because it provides the students with the concepts and the theory as well as the worked-out examples.""This is a giant whopper of a textbook, and I love it. It is one of the most comprehensive treatises of environmental geochemistry available, with a thorough mix of fundamental derivations, worked-out examples, and chemical rigor."

"I would definitely consider adopting this text for our undergraduate Environmental Chemistry course because the exposure to geochemistry principles is well served."

Even the sample problems have errors in them.

If you have at least some knowledge of the topic I would suggest you look for a higher level book.

If you don't know ANYTHING about Environmental Geochemistry this is an ok starting text. There aren't many like it out there so it is what it is. However, the book is full of mistakes - especially the problems and examples. If you have at least some knowledge of the topic I would suggest you look for a higher level book.

The book is better the Gunter in a number of ways, although you probably want both. The book itself has still in good quality, and I am extremely pleased with it.

The book (I'm only through chapter 2) explains how to manipulate equations but not how to apply the information. The examples jump around a lot. It doesn't really break it down step-by-step.
