—Industry and Environment, Vol. 23, no. 1-2, January-June 2000

"This handbook is intended primarily for engineers, industrial hygienists, health and safety officers, and plant engineers and managers, although some material may be of interest to lawyers, the news media, and regulatory officials."
—SciTech Book News, Vol. 24, No. 4, December 2000

"This is one of the few books to highlight the different aspects of environmental management and control."

—International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 80, No. 296, 2001

"well-written and a pleasure to read . . . I recommend the book as a resource text for libraries. It actually could be used as a course text."
