For a systematic approach to fieldwork in sedimentary terranes, Tuckers book provides an excellent framework. The main sets of sedimentary structures, fabrics e.t.c. is described in a short consise manner, as a geologist would do in the field. So if you are a novice at sedimentology like myself, or just wish to approach the outcrop studies in a more effective way, this book will be of great use.

I used this while studying geology at university. Only wish I had got it sooner during my degree!
Really great little book. Brilliant for any field work that involved sedimentary rocks (perfect size to have stashed in your pocket/rucksack), but it was also very useful for sedimentary geology and petroleum geology modules in the class/lab as well as in the field. Had plenty of people borrowing it as well! Found it invaluable during my independent field mapping.
All in all, a great little book that has literally been a saviour a number of times. Really well laid out and explained well, covers everything it should and a bit more in great detail. Probably one of my most used textbooks in uni, definitely recommend!
