Marc Tadaki in Progress in Physical Geography:
“In Environmental Expertise, Turnhout et al. have effectively reorganised and reanalysed most of the field of STS, filtering it through the lens of professional practice. In so doing, they have performed a tremendous service to STS scholars who have often wondered what it is we ‘know’ that can inform scientific practice, and how.”

Abby Kinchy in Critical Policy Studies:
“Many of us teach students who are preparing for careers as scientists or engineers. (…) As a policy scholar or professor in another social science, it can be both thrilling and daunting to have this teaching opportunity. With this new textbook, the job has become a lot less intimidating.”

Kamilla Karhunmaa in Alue ja ympäristö (Space & Environment, in Finnish):
“Authors manage to do a lot of subtle work by putting several different forms of information production under critical scrutiny. (…) Practicality is often thought of in textbooks as information boxes and checklists. Environmental Expertise, on the other hand, brings critical issues to the fore.”
