Excellent textbook! - A must-have for all mineral exploration geologists. Up to date, comprehensive, well-illustrated and with case history examples from mineral deposits from all over the world. I have been waiting for a book like this for over 40 years!

I'm really enjoying this book - which is written "for practitioners by practitioners" of exploration geophysics.

- No overkill maths - but maths inserted where necessary
- Many real-world deposit-scale examples which Mike Dentith has made something of his trademark in the geophysical literature
- Good coverage of all the principal techniques

The book comes in at 438 pages and is good value given the (very) many coloured graphics and diagrams.

Personally I would have liked it to be even longer (!!) as have enjoyed each section and wanted more depth in parts.

- Great for undergraduates to see how geophysics is used in the real-world on the metals/mining side of things.
- Great for post-grads in geology and geophsyics as a one-stop-shop to understand geophysics to a reasonable level
- Great for real-world explorers too: The book explains the techniques quickly and without fuss.

I have to admit a little positive bias as I note the book has referenced a couple of papers I authored many years ago as examples in the magnetics section

Overall a great job by two authors who have 'been there, done that' in mineral exploration geophysics - but who both continue to 'do it'. Let's hope that a second edition is on the cards in a few years time. Four stars from here. If there was a further 100 pages and even more examples it would get the extra star!

Excellent book. Meets the objectives it aims to fulfil. Well written and wonderfully illustrated. A must have on any Geologist's, Geoscientist's or even Geophysicist's bookshelf. A good balance between the fundamentals and state of the art. I would recommend it for graduate students.
