3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Anne Rassios on April 18, 2006
Format: Paperback
Browsing from another field of geoscience, Jenny's book formulates and describes the paradigm of the field. I have never filled the margins of any book with so many thoughts and speculations. And yes, I even went out into the field to look at dirt as a result.

Jenny's theorem is an elegant expression of math so complex that it is doubtful that any solution can ever by achieved to precisely describe the geochemical environment at any moment. Yet is describes the tendency for soil forming factors to reach equilibrium, an equilibrium dependent ultimately on climate.

Any geoscientist or scientific minded individual should read The Principia, The Origin of Species, The Structure of a Scientific Revolution and -- Hans Jenny's book on Factors of Soil Formation.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mark R. Deering on July 20, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
The book is a master work with many illustrations and data tables. But in the kindle edition the tables are unintelligible, making it virtually useless. Get the paperback instead.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
No soil scientist should be without a copy of this pedology classic. Useful to both new and experienced. Jenny covers the soil forming factors with many real world examples.
