I never knew squat about volcanoes except what you see on the news when one goes off.
I bought this book to see what they are all about. Its a well written book authored by someone who knows his stuff.
The explanations of volcano types and the material spewing from them are easy to understand.
The story of what is going on under our feet many many miles down is fascinating.
I recommend this book to adults who want to know more about these monsters from down under, way down under. I strongly recommend it to high schoolers who may, after reading this book,decide being a geologist and doing what the author has done would make a fantastic career..
I plan to pass this book on to other like minded friends.

This book was a quick read with information I did not know previously. It makes a good addition to the other "coffee table" books concerning the geology of Arizona. We live two miles from an extinct (we hope) volcano and there are many more in the area. Just last week, there was a minor (3.1) earthquake a few mile north of where we live. Flagstaff and the Santa Fe Peaks are also only an hour or so drive away.

This book is very educational, and it's very easy to pick things up from it. I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in volcanoes and their geological aspects. It's very well written, making the information easy to understand. It's a great book for people just getting interested in these types of things, and it's also great for more advanced people since they can get more information that they may not have known. It's definitely a great book, and I'm glad to have it in my collection.
