There are charts and questionnaires to help define problems and an extensive index that includes legal references and precedents.

“While the cover looks like a grown-ups’ coloring book, it belies the seriousness of what’s within. The book is geared toward the non-environmental lawyer who needs to catch up on this practice area, as well as commercial property and business owners.” — The [California] The Recorder, a legal publication of American Lawyer Media, Inc. – [comments on 1st edition]

“This concise and thoroughly documented book, based on decades of experience, contains a wealth of valuable information and practical strategies to avoid environmental litigation in an increasingly litigious world. Written with remarkable clarity, numerous illustrative examples, more than a touch of perspective, and even well-aimed humor, this book is completely accessible to the non-specialist property owner. Takes you by the hand and leads you step-by-step through every aspect you need to know. The Index and Appendices alone are worth the price of admission. The best introductory book of its kind on the market.” — Dr. Arthur Weiner, UCLA Professor of Public Health-[comments on 1st edition]
