As a student geologist, this is the perfect guide. Instructions and text is all clear and easy to understand, and there's plenty of diagrams to study. This has helped greatly with both my mapping projects, research and field exploration, and is useful to have when brushing up on observation techniques. Lots of the diagrams are hand-drawn, which reduces clarity a little, but it gives good example as to how I should be setting out my models and using my field book.

As for the book "used" status, the damage to it was minimal - some stickers, a little folding, but nothing major. A wonderfully useful book :)

Good book, although the printing is a bit not good (I was going to use another word there, but thought better not).

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
