Media reviews

From the reviews:

"The book challenges one of the core assumptions of Plate Tectonics a" that the plates are rigid and dona (TM)t undergo deformation. a ] this book is a valuable contribution to the current debate a ] . This is an interesting book, about results rather than methods, which is why the author has included such an extensive and valuable reference list. a ] this book is a rewarding read that could change your outlook. Geoscientists of all flavours will find something of interest in this book a ] ." (Kevin McCue, The Australian Geologist, Issue 127, 2003)

"A new book with an interesting hypothesis a ] A fundamental tenet of plate tectonics is incorrect a" namely that the plates are rigid. a ] Overall, I found the book to be very well organized a ] . The writing is extremely clear. a ] The best praise I can give Soft Plate and Impact Tectonics is that I enjoyed reading it, learned a lot, and will recommend it to others. a ] The book will be very useful for graduate students." (Basil Tikoff, EOS a" American Geophysical Union, Vol. 83 (50), 2002)
