Introducing Geology Reviews

'a key resource for both amateur and professional geologists alike, remarkably squeezing virtually all the basics of our subject into some 135 pages with many informative illustrations.' European Geologist 'For any basic level geology book to succeed, it needs to be well written and include great pictures and diagrams - and this book does not disappoint - This little guide covers everything you would expect from a basic level geology book, including the rock cycle, plate tectonics, fossils and industrial uses for geology. It also includes a great glossary.' Deposits Magazine 'a great little book...in this book Graham Park has captured the spirit of geology...packed with essential information...For the price, basic level geology books do not come any better.' Geoscientist
