Additional Information

More than any other introductory physical geology textbook, Understanding Earth is designed to bring the worldview of the working geologist to an audience not only new to this specific field, but in many cases to science in general. Students aren't merely presented with concepts and processes--they come to learn how we know what we know, and how that knowledge impacts their lives as citizens and consumers.

I have some background in biological science and I have always wanted to find a way to get up to speed on geology because so much of evolutionary biology has reference to geology. I have gone through one textbook and numbers of Internet readings on geology. I can say that I learnt a great deal from these. Yet when I started to read this book 'Understanding Earth' a whole new understanding opens up before me. I like this book for its simple and comprehensive explanations and its coloured cross sectional representations which seem to transport me to be right there on the spot! I am halfway through the book and I have a great feeling that when I finish I will have then acquired a whole new discipline, not perhaps to the level of a graduate student but sufficient for me to base my biology on it.
I purchased this book, Understanding Earth, for my Geology, Earth Systems class. The book has nice glossy pages and colorful pictures! 5th edition is just as good as 6th edition according to my professor, has the same number of pages, and is a lot cheaper. I was very happy to be able to purchase such an excellent used copy of this for such a very low price and receive it in the mail so fast. This was a perfect transaction! I buy almost all my college books from Amazon and am very satisfied! Thank you! Understanding Earth
I was looking for a comprehensive book on Geology that wasn't so technical I would have to go back to school to get through it. This book works admirably. It's technical, but not to the point of being obscure. For an in depth view of the Earth Sciences it is very good!
