To understand timely issues such as natural disasters and environmental challenges—and to evaluate solutions to related problems—the average citizen needs a basic awareness of the scientific principles that influence our planet. This trusted book makes an often-complex subject accessible to readers with a strong focus on readability and illustrations. Offers a meaningful, non-technical survey that is informative and up to date for learning basic principles and concepts. Includes a revised and expanded GEODe Earth CD-ROM. Updates and revises art and illustrations to include dozens of new high-quality, photographs carefully selected to aid understanding and add realism. Provides a wealth of new special-interest boxes, including "Earth as a System," "People and the Environment," and "Understanding Earth." A useful reference for anyone interested in learning more about Earth's geology.
Maybe our understanding of billions-of-years-old processes hasn't changed dramatically in the three years between the 11th and 12th editions? Seems that way, because my classmates' 12th edition textbooks were virtually identical to my 11th edition.
Don't support the ridiculous textbook industry. If you must purchase this book for class, get this edition. I got an A, and so will you.
All they would have to do to fix this is to reduce the amount of image compression and this text book would become readable.
When you catch youself asking questions like “Is that blue blob sky or is it part of rock?” or “I can’t tell if that gray blob is a rock or just mud on the ground.”
It’s a shame that they ruined the book like this, since images here are important for the student to visually recognize rocks from eachother. And it would be very simple to fix this.
