As a student of physical geography, I am constantly seeking cheap books such as this one in order to add to the amount of material read for my course. Chester writes, in my opinion, the best material pertaining to volcanoes and their effects upon society. My one niggling criticism is that the title and cover are misleading, as the book is about a variety of subjects pertaining to tectonics and associated, rather than about volcanoes. Would recommend to a student or someone refreshing their memory on such subjects.
