Media reviews
'The book is clearly written in a style that is relaxed and easy to understand. Diagrams are plentiful, clearly produced and add considerably to the value of the text ... It is rare these days to find a book about climate change that is indifferent to the popular simplistic view and detached from impassioned warnings of impending environmental disasters. This is what makes Climate Process and Change different from the plethora of publications on the subject. It should be essential reading for all inquisitive undergraduates who are interested in a balanced treatment of an important subject.' C. R. de Freitas, New Zealand Geographer 'This is an excellent and welcome contribution for students, reasearchers involved in the study of climatology, and libraries of academic and research institutions ... I would strongly recommend this book as a first text in climate processes and change.' Pitta Govinda Rao, Bulletin 'Edward Bryant has produced a fascinating book, which is targeted at both the general reader and also students studying climatology in university geography and environmental science courses.'
