This is a great textbook for anyone who wants to learn more about Geology. It presents complex ideas in an easy to understand format. I bought this for a college course two years ago and I liked it so much that I still have it.

OK I'm a new to geology. I am amazed to think about the many geologic formations that exsist. The book is a college level book that is both informative and enjoyable to read. It also makes you think. I'm glad I bought the book (yes - I'm cheap I got it used) but I will probably read it twice. Highly recommended for the newbee.

This is not a field guide or a rock ID book but an honest to goodness college level introductory text to introduce physical geology.

Very informative. I took the class to go along with it so learning the content came very easy, but it is arranged very clearly. Beautiful pictures. If you want to learn geology and know nothing or very little, this is a great starters textbook.

Brings back many memories from when I started out as a Geology major in........1953. 6 more words REQUIRED is flipping ridiculous. you evidently have zero respect for your customers. Go fly a kite !

This is the first geology book I have studied. It seems to be fairly complete for an introductory text. The pictures and graphics are excellent and the text easy to follow. A point that needs to be mentioned is that the authors repeat a lot of things multiple times. This is a good thing. It negates the need to go back and look stuff up that was forgotten or missed somehow. Repetition is the key to learning. The authors have done very well in this regard.

After a National Parks tour, I understood how much I had missed by not taking a course in geology in college - many, many years ago. So - I purchsed this book and am happy I did so. It is easy reading for anyone who even vaugely remembers inorganic chemistry. This is an excellent book for anyone of high school age or older (I'm 86). The author encourages the learning experience..

Recommended by my teacher -- a little more detailed than I expected but it's a good book. I have had texts that were more readable but, then it's written by professors so I guess that's not their strong point.
