Poor printing quality, but overall a good reference book. Oct. 1 2008
By Bon Jovi Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for a watershed management class. It is a very informative and interesting read so far. I have divided my review into the good, bad and ugly:

The good: It appears to be a good reference book for future use outside the classroom. There are 'policy issue' sections, case studies, 'closer look' sections, and guest essays that all contribute to real world examples as related to the material in the book. The two-column format is easy to read. There are several suggested readings, videos, and websites for each chapter, not just one or two.

The bad: All pictures and maps are in black and white. Color maps and pictures would be nice.

The ugly: The printing quality is not what I would expect of a $100+ textbook. It looks like it is draft quality printing. The entire book is in black and white. The only color is on the front cover.

Boring but Required Sept. 21 2011
By NoSnsLeft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wouldn't suggest this text book for any light reading. It's informative enough but I couldn't believe a book about water could be so dry (ha!). Unfortunately, it's required for my class so I don't have any choice in the matter, but it's quite impossible to read. At least it isn't ridiculously heavy.

Fantastic Overview to Water Resource Engineering Jan. 22 2009
By Katie Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives a fantastic overview of water resources and how they came to be. I have used this book as a student, teacher and consultant reference. It definitely fills a void in current literature. I also agree with the Bon Jovi review regarding content and layout - fantastic!
Solid book for an elective class, actually interesting Dec 3 2013
By Michael J. Mora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was required for an elective class I took on water resources. Honestly, I was pretty skeptical buying a book for an elective since books in general are pretty expensive and add up quickly. Luckily this one wasn't anywhere near as expensive as say a calculus or physics book.

In my class we used this book sparingly. We'd have a reading assignment about every other week from this book. In my opinion it was a pretty interesting read and it definitely brought up some good discussion within our class. I must say I was pleasantly surprised being as water resources didn't seem like the most interesting topic to me. All in all, I learned a good amount from this book that I still recall to this day.
