Reviews - What do our customers think?
O.k.  May 25, 2010
O.k. for what is in there, but I would rather have a field guide with more specimens and information. Save your money and buy the "National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Rocks and Minerals".
 
Rock and Mineral Book  Mar 28, 2010
Perfect size for travel. Fits in purse, pocket or pack. Easy to refer to.
 
Great beginner resource  Feb 12, 2010
As a hobbyist I was looking for a good book to start off with. I found this book to be a great starting place. The introduction is clear and provides enough details to set the stage for understanding the rest of the material. There are photographs of each type of rock and mineral presented. The rocks and minerals are presented in a clear and concise manner with just enough information to give the reader a general idea of the chemical composition, physical description, and typical locations for each item discussed.

I also found the writing style of this book pleasant and enjoyable to read.
 
To the point, basics, and a lot of examples.  Dec 1, 2009
This book is small, easily fits into your pocket, sturdy for its tall size, and filled with brilliant photos or examples with short descriptions as the pages go on.

As a direct read it is a quickie, but it is also a decent reference guide to the most common rocks, metals, and crystals. It discusses basic geology and the formation of the planet and what makes our elements, it gives to-the-point single paragraphs on a lot of basic material. This would be a great guide to the starting geologist or student hungering for a hobby.
