From the reviews:
"This beautifully produced book is a comprehensive summary of the main findings and their implications in an easily accessible format. ... Overall the book reflects the enormous investment in geophysical data represented by this long-term project, and the resulting geophysical interpretations of crustal structure and processes. ... I recommend this book as an indispensable resource for serious researchers interested in the structure of this unique, active, subduction-related mountain system." (R. J. Pankhurst, Geological Magazine, Vol. 145, 2008)
