   For an in depth view of the Earth Sciences it is very good!
I would have to go back to school to get through a book on Geology that wasn't so technical. This book is well written. It's technical, but not obscure. It is very good for an in depth look at the Earth Sciences.
   Understanding Earth
I have a background in biological science and have always wanted to find a way to get up to speed on geology, because so much of evolutionary biology references geology. I have read a number of Internet readings on geology. I learnt a lot from these. A whole new understanding opens up before me when I start to read the book ' Understanding Earth'. I like this book for its simple and comprehensive explanations and its coloured cross sectional representations which make me feel like I'm right there on the spot. I'm halfway through the book and I think I' ll be able to base my biology on it if I finish it.
   Understanding Earth
I bought this book for my class. There are glossy pages and colorful pictures in the book. The 5 th edition is just as good as the 6 th edition, has the same number of pages, and is a lot cheaper, according to my professor. I was very happy to be able to purchase an excellent used copy of this for a very low price and receive it in the mail very quickly. This was a perfect transaction. I buy most of my college books from Amazon and I am very happy with them. Thank you for understanding the Earth!
   Arrived just as the owner stated.
I am taking a class online and ordered this for it. I found a used book. The condition was described by the owner and he said it was true. The book helped with the test and I found it interesting.
   Five Stars
The text with tons of graphic geology makes it understandable and interesting.
   Helpful book to master material
The pages are rearranged a little differently, but the same material is there. The models and pictures are very helpful.
   Excellent for Beginners
The book is well written and concise, and it's for someone with very little knowledge of science. I feel like I have a better understanding of the basic workings of the Earth after reading a few times. Highly recommendable.
