Although [Jobs in Fine Arts and Humanities] gives some information about careers, it covers far too broad an area to be anything but superficial in treatment…. Adequately written, but not very useful. (p. 38)

[The New Air Book is a companion to The New Water Book. With] simple experiments worked into the text wherever possible, Berger introduces just about everything he can think of that has to do with air—breathing, atmosphere, wind, weather, flying, and pollution (this last, mostly assurances about the EPA's effectiveness and instructions for measuring different kinds of pollution). The writing is clear, [and] the experiments relevant to the matter at hand …; what is missing is a sense of overall direction. (p. 1254)
