I agree with the previous reviewer - this book is a little gem.
It makes geophycics understandable to those without a strong maths background. The format is easily digestible - it contains lot of illustrative diagrams and photos, lists of further readings at the end of each chapter plus exercises to work on (called problems).
I bought this book couple of years back for my university module and I still return to it now and then, just to flick through to remind myself of the basics.
