Though not a giant one, Lawn's piercing thoughts into the essence of brittle fracture can be clearly read and transferred (especiaaly for those who have studied and indulged into fracture like me). From the beginning, Griffith's spirits are extracted from his classic papers and put as a corner stone through out the book. Unlike many other authors, the author apparently appreciates and must have digged deeply into Griffith's paper. The remaining chapters illustrate it in an enlightening way, i.e., the subjects are treated as concepts-faced, not a pile-ups of entangling "dislocations" (facts). At least for me, some concepts had firmly taken their roots in my mind after reading. Not the least, the references given guides one fracturing through the literature and aims at providing some classic papers in the field for further study. They really take effect! I am at least not missed in library.
