“In summary, the book is written for geology students mapping in the U.K., as opposed to the professional geoscientist. At its best, the book conveys the advice of experienced geology instructors to novice field mapping students as they struggle to learn the fundamentals of geologic observation and interpretation.” (Environmental & Engineering Geoscience, 2 May 2013)
“No field geoscientist should be without this handy, unparalleled guide. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students.” (Choice, 1 August 2012)"This is a "how to do it" book and excels in being a good straight-forward read, packed with detailed information and advice, spiced with a little humour here and there." (Geomatics World, 1 March 2012)
