` As a compendium of information ... this book should serve as a fine reference source for those who want a quick insight into global patterns and trends of environmental decline.' Norman Myers, Nature
Some reviews of previous editions: "It is a veritable mine of information ... the data provided by this impressive, wide-ranging and often fascinating report are therefore useful as 'one-offs' to include in a lecture, a textbook, or a general report, and as such the volume is a valuable reference work." Applied Geography "This book is as much a scientifically prepared 'report' as it is 'data'. It makes interesting, thoughtful and very depressing reading, but it is strongly recommended as a source of subject-awareness for the research worker and student and as a source of facts, of varying degrees of hardness, for supporting arguments in the political arena, on the needs for action to avert further deterioration of the environment." W. R. Stanton, Biological Wastes "As a compendium of information ... this book should serve as a fine reference source for those who want a quick insight into global patterns and trends of environmental decline." Norman Meyers, Nature
