About the Author

G. Tyler Miller has written 62 textbooks for introductory courses in environmental science, basic ecology, energy, and environmental chemistry. Since 1975, Miller's books have been the most widely used textbooks for environmental science in the United States and throughout the world. They have been used by almost three million students and have been translated into eight languages. Miller has a professional background in chemistry, physics, and ecology. He has a PhD from the University of Virginia and has received two honorary doctoral degrees for his contributions to environmental education. He taught college for 20 years, developed one of the nation's first environmental studies programs, and developed an innovative interdisciplinary undergraduate science program before deciding to write environmental science textbooks full time in 1975. Currently, he is the president of Earth Education and Research, which is devoted to improving environmental education.

Scott Spoolman is a writer and textbook editor with more than 30 years of experience in educational publishing. He has worked with Tyler Miller since 2003 as a contributing author on editions of LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, and SUSTAINING THE EARTH. With Norman Myers, he also coauthored ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS: A MODULAR APPROACH. Spoolman holds a master's degree in science journalism from the University of Minnesota. He has authored numerous articles in the fields of science, environmental engineering, politics, and business. He worked as an acquisitions editor on a series of college forestry textbooks. He has also worked as a consulting editor in the development of over 70 college and high school textbooks in fields of the natural and social sciences. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the forests and waters of his native Wisconsin along with his family-- his wife, environmental educator Gail Martinelli, and his children, Will and Katie.

By Stephen Myers on February 6, 2010
Format: Hardcover
1. I bought the book used for college course at a great $40 price with some cosmetic wear and tear and who cares - it was not bought as an art investment, just a text book.
2. Definitely a worthwhile book to read, however (and here comes the rub) authors Miller and Spoolman (I suspect Miller is the heavy weight of the two) occassionally depart from dispassionate science. They aer not impartial and have some very big axes to grind. Also, the writing style needs reflects their missionary zeal. It is not tight, concise, and antiseptic. Implicitly they are looking for converts.
3. An example (the cheap shot): they are happy to apply models of species origination, growth, evolution, decline, and ultimate extinction to the animal and plant kindom as a whole, BUT, they are squeamish in applying these frameworks DISPASSIONATELY to homo sapien. Good science is dispassionate and Miller and Spoolman are anything but.

The sender sent the book 2 or 3 hours after i ordered it, which was really impressive. The book also got to my house on the first day of possible delivery time when there was a 3 week window of when it might be delivered. The book was absolutely perfect. It looked better than i imagined it would. I am so so happy and would give the seller more than 5 stars if I could

The examples provided in the book were easy to understand and applied to everyday life. It still reads like a text book but information is provided to help different types of learners, such as graphs, stories, facts, etc.

I use this for my AP class in high school. It's very helpful, as we do all of the learning through chapter outlines of this book. It was in spectacular condition when it arrived, even though it was used. It does have some giant stickers on it though, saying that its used. (The entire back cover was covered with a sticker, and the back actually does have helpful stuff on it. Oh well.) But the inside was in pristine, almost new condition.

Text book information. Nothing new. Only purchase if needed for a class. You can get better information on the internet.
