Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Another virtue of the book is to emphasize, on first use, each term with which the reader may not be familiar. Learning of the topics and copics is greatly facilitated. Finally, the book contains easily understood diagrams of glaciers, and the landforms they create.
Having read the book, the reader has become very familiar with the basic knowledge of this most important phenomenon, and stands ready to tackle more detailed work if he or she so desires. I recommend this work very, very highly.
Of great utility is the glossary, and the use of bold-face for first use of terms defined therein.
