"The reviewer considers that Dr Knappett, in revising this classic textbook, has made a substantial additional contribution to the years of service given by Dr Craig to the civil engineering profession, in general, and the geotechnical community in particular."
—Catherine O’Sullivan, Imperial College, London, UK
"Jonathan Knappett is breathing a fresh lease of life into this old favourite with several new slants, including for the first time the design philosophy of Eurocode 7 and much new material...I propose to keep it on our list of ‘must consult’ textbooks."
—Edward Bromhead, Kingston University, UK
"Buying a copy of Craig as an undergraduate is a lifetime career investment."
—Geoffrey Blight, Witwatersrand University, South Africa
"All the background needed for those engaged in geotechnical engineering practice, foundation engineering and construction can be found in this book."
—Fred Boadu, Duke University, USA
"As a professor and civil engineering professional, I found this 8th edition of Craig’s Soil Mechanics to be everything a beginning engineering student is looking for in an introductory textbook on soil mechanics… I would highly recommend this as one of the finest textbooks on the topic of soil mechanics."
—Gregory Ohrn, Northern Arizona University, USA
"This valuable textbook is highly recommended to students, engineers, and educators in the field of geotechnical engineering."
—Mehrdad Razavi, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, USA
