MEDIA REVIEWS
...one of the most comprehensive basic environmental and engineering geology books that this reviewer has encountered, ... wishes it had been available when he was still teaching. ... a fine resource for either geology for engineers or environmental geology, and a quick reference for those who have forgotten some of the basics. ...Highly recommended.
-- C.W. Dimmick, Central Connecticut State University, in Choice Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, January 2008, Vol. 45 No. 05
