From the Inside Flap
This widely used, highly readable introduction to structural analysis is specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses. Throughout the book, a geologic map from a mythical site, the Bree Creek Quadrangle, is used to help students analyze various aspects of the geologic structures exposed within this quadrangle, and ultimately to combine these analyzes into a grand synthesis.
Guided by students' and instructors' suggestions, the authors have refined several exercises and added new ones for this third edition. In addition, every figure has been redrafted to improve clarity, and the Bree Creek Quadrangle map has been compiled onto a single fold-out sheet. An instructor's manual is available on request from the publisher to assist the laboratory instructor in the use of the book.

It does have a lot of good information and is mostly easy to use. It helps you understand some concepts in your strucural class.
The map is just silly and some of it is wrong. But, once you learn where the mistakes are you can work through them in the right way.
Doesn't go over stereonets as well as I would have liked, but other than that, it was an ok lab manual.
Pencil doesn't work so well on the pages, use pen.
