Review Mr. Eccelston has written a most thorough guide to managing and preparing EAs that puts NEPA back into its original perspective - a planning and decision-making tool…comprehensively covers the EA process…provides practical guidance for effectively preparing an analysis…
-Mr. Russell W. Peterson, Former Governor of Delaware and Former Chairman of the CEQ

NEPA is the cornerstone of our environmental statutory structure and provides a strategic look for long-range planning. By explaining the environmental assessment process in a scholarly, yet easily understandable way, Charles Eccleston has performed an enormous service for all who care about the protection of our country's - and indeed the world's - environment.
-Michael R. Deland, Former Chairman, Council on Environmental Quality.

Charles Eccleston has performed a real service in authoring Effective Environmental Assessments: How to Manage and Write NEPA Assessments. The book fills a void and concentrates on environmental assessments, a critical but underemphasized part of the NEPA process. It is, furthermore, both useful and user-friendly.
-Nicholas C. Yost, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, former General Counsel of the Council on Environmental Quality
