As a beginner guide to mapping of geological structures this is great. The information on identification of normal faults, hanging and footwall is helpful in the field as it is quite easy to mistake a normal and reverse fault. It size and weight mean its easily accessible in the field (can fit into large pockets).
I would buy a see through bag or some thing to waterproof the book in the field as the page get soaking in the rain and smudge
Overall: extremely helpful guide of Faults in the field
