"The way that you presented the information, as a blend of history, statistics, academic research, and personal anecdotes was very intriguing and I had a hard time putting the book down once I started reading it."
Cliff Brown
"The book strikes such a nice balance on so many levels. This is not only the best environmental sociology text I've used, but it's is the best text - of any type - I've used in college-level teaching. I really look forward to the fourth edition."

He is also a part-time composer of grassroots and classical music, and a mandolinist, guitarist, and singer.
