  • Hirah
The best source book available on NEPA. Starts with an introduction and proceeds into successively more advanced material. Of particular interest are the tools and techniques that allow practitioners to streamline NEPA and provide more thorough analyses.
  • Sironynyr
Excellent book for beginners, novices, professionals and even the naïve practitioner in the overly complicated world of environmental impact assessments and regulatory excellence. This book is filled with insight by a NEPA expert, recognized throughout industry and government and by the President's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).

Top 10 objectives the book accomplishes:
1. How to gauge sufficiency of information for a NEPA document
2. Streamlined, defensible solution for determining whether project
changes trigger new NEPA documentation
3. Systematic, practical approach for assessing environmental impacts
4. Integrating NEPA and ISO 14001 for decision making through Adaptive
Management
5. Streamlined, defensible method for determining when a nonfederal
action triggers NEPA
6. Decision-Identification Tree with Decision-Based Scoping
7. Flexible NEPA process for assessing terrorist impacts and natural
disasters
8. Systematic, defensible method for assessing cumulative impacts
(significant departure principle)
9. Streamlined, defensible Programmatic Environmental Impact Statements
10. Systematic, defensible procedure for determining significance based
on severity and frequency

Eccleston describes NEPA from the perspective of planning as opposed to document preparation, unlike other authors.

The book provides step-by-step detail on the entire planning process. It begins with the elements of NEPA and the NEPA process then discusses the related objectives.

The layout and arrangement flow easily, with informative Tables and Figures just where they should be.

This book is key to understanding NEPA as a useful planning, compliance, and environmental management process tool.

As a NEPA manager engaged in large or demanding projects, I am continually faced with new problems and dilemmas in terms of how to best address complex scientific, regulatory, and legal issues in NEPA documents. No matter how complex the issues is, this book usually provides some guidance on how to deal with it. We have purchased a copy of this book for each and every one of our staff members. I personally have a copy of most NEPA books on the market. But this book is the clear leader in terms of providing comprehensive and dependable guidance.
  • Iarim
The author is the "Who's Who" of NEPA. For anyone engaged in NEPA, this is a "must have" book. Beginning with first principles, it advances the reader into subject matter appropriate for experts. The advice and tips for efficiently preparing concise and defensible documents is worth the investment many times over. But it is does more than simply detail the NEPA process, it provides a "how to" manual of tools, techniques, and approaches for practicing NEPA and the wider field of environmental planning. The book is the perfect guide for decision-makers and consultants, or for use as a text in university environmental or engineering programs.
