As a professional geologist I found this book to be most insightful. Aspiring students, as well as, those who wish to advance their own understanding of a vital subject need this book. Kieran O'hara has explained the use of our Earth's resources and has defined the likely impact of resource use and exploration. A basic knowledge of geology is recommended but not essential since the first chapters do a fine job of introducing the subject. Kudos, Bravo! My children will take this course in the near future.
