NOT Horrible...10 Sept. 2012
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The book starts off with a short historical background and contrary to the other review, the author does explain MANY items in and during the course of the book. It does seem inconsistant in what it does explain or embellish. It is like they are trying to explain the techniques, concepts and ideas that are outside of marine geology and assumes more knowledge on geological concepts. What is starting to become somewhat of a valid concern is that some of the data is getting dated and is lacking, naturally, related research since 1988 when this edition was published. Thus the relatively inexpensive price tag I think.
