This book is full of typos - the editing is extremely poor. Which then makes me wonder how the lack of attention to detail affects other areas such as research and balance. The questions at the end of the chapters often do not have answers in the book, even through inference - if you're using the internet to get answers anyway, why do you need the book??!! The teacher says this is "the" book used for AP Environmental - perhaps that is why they get away with charging $144 for something so poorly put together for the price. I highly recommend sharing the book among two or three students, since most of what we use it for is the assigned questions at the end of the chapter, not the content
