There's no avoiding that this book is a tad expensive, but if you have anything more than a passing interest in minerals or in British and Irish geology then you simply must have a copy. It is astonishingly thorough - the sort of book you might more commonly expect from a team of Swiss mineralogists. But don't expect a second edition any time soon - there's precious little left to add! Marvellous!
