This book is very good for individuals just starting out in the wastewater industry who want to understand the basics. Very simple to understand and read, also there are a lot of pictures at the end of the book that show the common wastewater organisms.

The pictures are very detailed. Identification can be made based on material in the text.

This is by far the best book I have come across regarding wastewater microbiology. The descriptions are well written and the photos really help lock in retention. Great reference!

All show no dough. Plenty of colorful pictures, very little informative text. For the cost, very disappointed.

well written book on wastewater microbiology. One of the very few with high quality color pictures.
