    Lawyers fight for the environment

    I found the book excellent, giving an in-depth and historical analysis of what constitutes pollution (in the 1800s it was known as a 'nuisance', and citizens could complain against it, and have the authorities shut down the source of it). How citizens (we) have let massive polluters steamroll their polluting projects past them (us) more recently, given the historical perspective, is incomprehensible. The book further described how the authors battled polluters (included city councils that were hopeless at treating wastewater in their constitutencies) and how they empowered fishermen, whose livelihoods depend on clean water, to sue the said city councils. It is a good example for people dependent on clean water worldwide (and there are many) to follow. The book finally describes how the authors set up the 'Riverkeepers' program, which is again a model for others to follow (and are following). Bravo and thank you.

    Worst Book EVER Written

    The Riverkeepers was one of the poorest books I have ever read. The authors jumped back and forth so many times it was hard to keep track of what was going on. I thought it was layed out poorly and very un organized. It was also a very slow read and was not exciting at all. The book was simply terrible.
