Written in a student-friendly manner, the text is enriched with a large number of illustrations.

Very lucid and concise..

About Book: It covers all the major environmental topics but in a very concise form. Topics are written in Question and Answer formats, easy to grasp. A lot of examples given which makes it a delight to read.

Cons (only from a civil services preparation perspective) : It gives only a basic understanding of the topics does not go into deep (which is needed for some topics now days). updated till only 2010-11.

Summary: for a basic understanding of environment, just go for it !!

Exceptionally Lucid and Engaging!

I had my doubts going for this book as I thought it would be other run of the mill books which only cater to questions asked in UPSC, without really bringing in conceptual clarity.
I found this book to be really refreshing as well as a great source for clearing the basics.
I would recommend this book to anyone who considers Environment and Ecology section of UPSC to be one's Achilles heel.
