Peter Hamilton Raven (born June 13, 1936) is an American botanist and environmentalist, notable as the longtime director, now President Emeritus, of the Missouri Botanical Garden. On June 13, 1936, Raven was born in Shanghai, China to American parents. An uncle of his father's was, for a time, one of the wealthiest Americans in China, but was later jailed in a banking scandal. That incident and Japanese aggression in China led the Raven family to return to San Francisco, CA in the late 1930s.

Talk about Environment

I was asked to evaluate ths for the textbook selection committee at a local high school for possible use as the text book for an environmental science class next year. Since my degree is in Environmental Science, and I have done a lot of work with environmental education, I have read a large number of environmental science books and have seen the good, bad and worst of books on the market.

At first I just planned to skim the book, but after reading a few pages I decided to look at the book more closely, and I was impressed with what I saw. The book is well written in clear, easy to understand language, using a good amount of well done graphs, charts and photos. The layout, in addition, was good, making the book flow in an orderly manner.

The information in the book was excellent, and covered the entire range, as much as is possible in one book, of environmental science. The biology and chemistry were integrated nicely and flowed smoothly.

I have rated this book as four stars only because I feel the authors didn't cover the section on renewable energy as well as I would have liked. The book tended to move through the subject rather quickly, offering only a limited view of what can be done to eliminate the use of fossil fuels. In all other ways this book was superior to many I have read.

I would highly recommend this for an introduction course in college, and also think it would bean excellent choice for a text at the AP or regular high school level, provided the students had enough science background to be able to understand the science. I even believe that a motivated home schooled student could study from this book and do quite well in the subject. Overall, one of the best introductory text books I've had the pleasure of reading.
exactly what you would want form a textbook. It's informative without being showey and dry. It gives you the information and how certain things work as well as the images, without giving you unecessarry information. I loved it and found it very helpful for my class.
I never like textbook's but when it is all new and relevant to my living on this planet, this one takes the cake and eats it too. My favorite textbook by a longshot.
Very informative and up-to-date, Environment reflects many current concepts and issues going on in the world today. The book does a fantastic job of showing how we really are all connected and sharing the same space. There is a really nice foldout in the back with some additional science information, a basic rundown on chemistry and a periodic table of the elements. I ordered this book for an environmental science class I was taking in class. Instead of selling the book back at the end of the class, I think I'll be keeping it. So much wonderful information, I'm sure I'll reference again and again.
Thank you!
Great book. Very very well written and is definitely useful for certain classes. Amazing pictures and very easy to read.
Bought it cause I had to for class. If you're in the same predicament than a review doesn't matter, does it? Anyways, it's pretty easy to read, but it's pretty dated.
