"Anyone concerned with the protection of Florida's ecological world would do well to read this book. If advocates of Florida's wild places are not outraged before they read Paving Paradise, they might just be upon finishing it."
--Florida Historical Quarterly
"A really good book."
--Society of Environmnetal Journalists
"Paving Paradise isn't just about egrets and panthers and cypress trees going down the tubes. Pittman and Waite help us understand that when private citizens and businesses wipe out wetlands, dry out springs and dump pollution into our underground drinking water, taxpayers suffer the consequnces and foot an enormous bill."
--St. Petersburg Times
