Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I consider this an excellent book. The quality of its construction and of its contents are both outstanding.

The book was written for those who need to know about SEM analysis of surface textures of sand grains and I am not one of those. So my opinions are from a different point of view than the books intended audience. I deal with microscopic analysis of the surface textures of sand grains and the upper limits of what is illustrated in this book is about the lower limits of what I can see. However, one of the reasons I deal with surface textures is to help in determin the origin and transport history of sand grains and for this purpose the organization of the book is excellent. The photographs are clear, the vocubulary explained and there are ample expamples of the various surface features discussed. If you want to know what a particular surface texture looks like, that is in front part of the book. If you want to know what surface textures are found on rocks of a particular orign, that is in the back part of the book.. This two fold organization makes the book doubly useful.

I expect it to become one of the most valuable books in my library.
