From the Inside Flap:

"Toxics A to Z is comprehensive, readable, usable, and--given the authors' sound, practical advice--quite doable. This well-organized book informs in clear contexts what we as consumers and we as citizens can do for a healthful environment."--Ralph Nader, Founder, Center for the Study of Responsive Law
"Judicious, clear, and more authoritative than any other single book in print, Toxics A to Z is a realistic appraisal of the impact that everyday hazards have on our health. Few people reporting on pollution hazards are of John Harte's scientific stature. Still fewer have surveyed and summarized virtually all the published research on the nature of impact of toxic substances in the environment as Harte and his colleagues have done. And no scientific research article is as easy to read or as comprehensive as this book."--Paul Ehrlich, Director, Center for Conservation Biology, Stanford University "Toxics A to Z will undoubtedly become the standard textual guide to toxic substances for environmentalists, biologists, chemists, and others interested in environmental issues, well into the next decade. The authors have provided an outstanding review of the sources, types, environmental and health effects, and management of toxins in our modern industrial society."--Peter H. Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden

From the Back Cover:

'Toxics A to Z is comprehensive, readable, usable, and --given the authors' sound, practical advice--quite doable. This well-organized book informs in clear contexts what we as consumers as we as citizens can do for a healthful environment.'
