Review Text

  • By Marie Simpson on 2 October 2001

    This book is a recommended text for several level 2 and 3 courses run by Open University and has been a fountain of knowledge for essays, major assignments and subsequent professional reports. I own the second edition of this book, the third edition promises to be crammed with up-to-the minute references, text and diagrams. Environmental students and professionals from all sectors, civil engineers, planners and site facilities managers with a vested interest in environmental management should own this essential text. Also has a good section on ISO14001.

    This is an invaluable book for any environmentally aware person, it is also a good aid to understanding terms that are used in envirionmental, science and technological language.

  • By Mrs. Maria C. Gilbert on 29 October 2008

    This comprehensive text on environmental science and technology is an excellent resource for the layperson and the academic alike. It covers a vast range of environmental issues which are particularly relevant today as we move towards a greater sensitivity and awareness of environmental issues. Andrew Porteous is to be congratulated on his capacity for a scholarly approach to the subject whilst talking in language that is accessible to the ordinary man and woman who is concerned with these issues.

    Ok dictionary however a lot of the things I have tried to look up simply aren't in it, i'm left to google things and hope the results aren't junk. I bought this for first year university level environmental science, however if I was to but again I think i'd try a different one. Its still ok though. As always great price and fast delivery from amazon

    This dictionary acts as a brilliant information service to the public as well as students and provides up-to-date information on environmental practices, knowledge and perceptions. I was encouraged to go on to other topics as well.
