...an excellent job of bringing together important and illustrative works from the literature... The text is clearly written, well organised and easy to follow throughout... I would recommend it as a very good book. -- Journal of Geological Education The text is well organised and very readable, with smooth transitions between topics, a difficult task when trying to be both concise and comprehensive. -- Geographical Review Extremely readable and therefore most suitable as a student textbook... The author provides a summary that is a credit to his ability to assimilate and synthesize, indeed a credit to his authorship... I can thoroughly recommend this book to serious practitioners and students of fluvial geomorphology. It is a very perceptive and well written book -- Australian Geographer Any department teaching or supervising postgraduate courses or research in fluvial geomorphology would be wise to ensure that a copy of this book is in the library, and preferably on the book shelf of the lecturer concerned. -- The South African Geographical Journal This is a welcome and sorely needed update of David Knighton's popular text. There are many new or clarified illustrations, including photographs. The new typesetting is a distinct improvement...the index is more readable and slightly fuller..In all, the book is clearly a significant contribution to teaching textbooks...that should inspire many new students. -- Geojournal
