From the reviews:

Weighing in at 1300 Letter-size pages of double-columned small print, and peppered every two or three pages with graphs, diagrams and photographs, often in colour, the encyclopedia is crammed with information and attractively packaged.  ...  the three editors, supported by a seven-strong editorial board of leading glaciologists, have done an impressive job of persuading a broad range of international experts to contribute entries to the volume.
(Robert Bingham, University of Aberdeen, Journal of Glaciology, Vol. 57, No. 206, 2011, pp. 1171-1172)

“Present the current state of scientific understanding of various aspects of earth’s cryosphere ––snow, glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, ice shelves, sea ice, river and lake ice, and permafrost –– and their related interdisciplinary connections under one umbrella. … the book is impressive … . a reference for all levels of undergraduates and graduates, as well as for geologists, geographers, climatologists, hydrologists, and many other relevant users. … Libraries, scholars and researchers of the subjects will certainly value the book in their reference collections.” (John Splettstoesser, The Polar Times, January 2012)

“The main articles include a number of regional surveys which range from Antarctica to Kilimanjaro. … There are articles on potential risk factors that are of immediate interest to those dealing with safety and emergency planning. There are detailed topics that will interest the specialist. … Article on the historical interpretation of glacial remains will interest historical geographers. No doubt there is much that will interest the armchair enthusiast and the mountaineer … . a worthy addition to the Encyclopedia of Earth Sciences series.” (John Goodier, Reference Reviews, Vol. 26 (2), 2012)
