"David Lawrence has produced a monumental work outlining Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as it is practiced globally." (Environmental Practice, March 2005)
“…an impressive book, with a wealth of information on EIA…” (International Journal of Environment & Pollution, Vol.23, No.4, 2005)
"…having a copy on hand in most practitioners' offices is highly recommended." (Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal, March 2005)
“…The whole book is informed by relevant case studies, which help bring some of the more theoretical discussions to life...” (Applied Organometallic Chemistry, Vol.19, No.1, January 2005)
"…David Lawrence's book is certainly a necessary one for anyone contemplating the siting of an industrial facility...there is reason to believe that Lawrence's book will improve the odds [of a successful siting]." (Chemical & Health Safety, August 2004)
"…well written and filled with a series of useful tables and diagrams to illustrate the flow and review of information developed in the EIA. This book will be of much interest to practitioners in the field." (Journal of Hazardous Materials, March 2004)
“...important and recommended reading for anyone involved in the EIA process.” (Journal of Environmental Quality, Vol. 33, No. 2 March-April 2004)
“...much of interest and practical value within this volume...highly recommended...” (Veterinary and Human Toxicology, February 2004)
“...a nice compilation of the issues surrounding environmental impact assessment and a welcome description of ways to address it...recommended to anyone working on EIAs, teaching the process, and any library supporting any environmental program.” (E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 3)
