The book has some minor formatting issues. There are a couple of places where a picture is referred to, but there was no picture in the indicated position. And at least once, the indicated picture didn't seem to illustrate the point made in the text. There's also one technical point that I would dispute. The author assumes that large pieces that are not worn are not as old as other glass on a particular beach - the reason being that all pieces are constantly rolling around on the bottom and will wear at a similar rate. On my local northern California and Oregon beaches, erosion buries and exposes deep deposits at intervals of as much as decades. I think some pieces simply end up being deeply buried for long periods where they are protected. For example, the pictured piece has, in all likelihood, been in the sea for 100+ years. It is not very worn, and I found it in an area of recent deep erosion.
Anyway, despite my minor quibbles, I'm very pleased with the purchase and the sea glass education.
