"In one very readable volume, Ben Alter has managed to write both an excellent primer for students and aspiring environmental consultants as well as a handy reference guide for even the most experienced consultants and environmental managers. It is well written and supplemented by many helpful graphics and illustrations. Above all, it reflects the invaluable and extensive experience that the author has garnered over years of successful consulting."
--Howard N. Apsan, Ph.D., University Director of Environmental, Health, Safety and Risk Management, The City University of New York, USA

--Carrie Anne Vinch, Ryder Truck Rental, Inc, Lawrenceville, New Jersey, USA
"It is straightforward and easy to follow. It touches on exactly what an environmental consultant would need to know when walking into a job. It is a great blend of theory and practical information--something hard to find in most texts. ... It provides guidelines that can be easily taught to students or followed by professionals."
