6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By R. Garside on 3 May 2010
Format: Textbook Binding Verified Purchase
I am a third year geologist at the University of Cambridge and this book is invaluable for the petrology part of my course. It is clear and well-written and an excellent complement to my lecture notes and the papers I have been reading. It is probable that you are looking at this book because you are either interested in geology or are an actual student, so in this case I would say that it is a worthwhile investment of your money. Despite stating that it is an introduction, it goes into sufficient detail to still be useful in the 3rd year of a tough course and I would definitely recommend it.

(Note: This review was partly written to give an honest viewpoint on the book and provide a useful review compared to the off-topic dishonest rating given which could have put off potential readers.)

Learn Petrology & the Evidence for Continental Collision. 29 Oct 2011
By Searcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Textbook Binding Verified Purchase
As an introduction to metamorphic petrology, start by reading the examples which have a map to the exemplified site. Also, read the chapter summaries and conclusions. Such recommendations are for a beginner who may have difficulty relating to phase diagrams and rather concise text. The reader will recognize that the many examples illustrate the effects of continental drift. So the reader will be studying evidence used to hypothesize that specific continents had collided. Study methods and a physicist's or chemist's analysis will be found in Physics and Chemistry of Earth Materials (Cambridge Topics in Mineral Physics and Chemistry)by Alexandra Navrotsky.
