"A concise and intelligent summary of the major aspects of volcanism in a highly attractive format."

Geology Magazine

"This delightful book is the second edition...It presents a concise and intelligent summary of the major aspects of volcanism in a highly attractive format. The text is clear, well written and probably aimed at an audience from sixth-form upwards. An excellent balance has been struck between keeping the text at an approachable level, and yet presenting up-to-date and factually correct science. This book deserves to brighten the shelves of anyone with even a passing interest in the natural history igneous rocks."
