This is the book all those who have nightmare of the mathematical aspects of geophysics need to see. This book simplifies all the calculus and makes it look like everyday arithmetic.Integrations are made to look like buying and selling, reading through the text gives you the feeling of reading a best selling novel. Earth scientists who care more about applications and not exotic principles and equation with theories will find this book an invaluable guide in everyday field and classroom work.The principles of the various geophysical methods are presented in basic understandable terms.Applications are stressed and practical examples given. Beginners, non geophysicist will get endeared to the course by merely reading through its first few flowing chapters. This all makes the subject look like a piece of cake, but that is what it is in reality following the way the whole subject is presented and outlined. i am a living testimony of how the book has fueled my interest and taken away my fear of all the numerous integrals and differential involved in geophysical theories. This is a must for all aspiring geophysicist as well those who want to know how the stuff works in geophysics. go get the book

I found this text to be very clear and concise . The mathematical content should not be bewildering for professionals associated with geophysics , or indeed geology .
The only thing I could recommend for the next edition is the inclusion of some photographs illustrating the equipment used on site .
Otherwise an excellent book .
