Format: Paperback
At the beginning you can find an introductory section which tells you all the vital information you should know about for the forthcoming sections. The definitions are clear, understandable will not leave you with further questions.
All the minerals, rocks and fossils are accompanied with a superb quality picture or figure. Once you have read the text, you can have a look at the pictures, which really show what has previously been mentioned.
If you are a keen geologist or you feel that it was not enough that you heard on the geography lessons, than you ought to have a copy of it. Buy one and you won't be disappointed.

The diagrams and descriptions make the minerals, rocks or fossils you are studying very east to identify. Not only useful in a classroom/lecture session but also out in the field as it is well laid out so you can easily find what you are looking for. All in all, a great book for any person vaguely interested in what they see in the outdoors.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John Bugg on 8 Dec. 2008
Format: Paperback
Philip's Guide to Rocks and Minerals is a classic but suffers from being pocket sized. It would be better to split it into a handy field guide and an expanded, and larger format, book explaining the formation of the rocks and minerals. In that way the two of them together would make a superb introduction to earth science. The explanatory sections in the present book are too brief and very tightly printed.
