Media reviews
In this excellent new edition of the standard British university textbook on sedimentary petrology, the text and references to further reading have been thoroughly updated to reflect the enormous volume of recent research. Aslib Book Guide, November 2001 "...a textbook designed for undergraduates, but it will also have a wider appeal. Many will find it, as I did, a painless and pleasant way to up-date their knowledge of the origin of sedimentary rocks and the modern techniques employed in the discipline. With a grounding in basic sedimentology the enthusiast will find much in this book of interest even without access to refined technology." Bonita Thomson, Open Universiy, Geology Today
