Amateur Geologist, Inc :: Books :: Learning About Geology :: Handy Geology Answer Book

Handy Geology Answer Book
Handy Geology Answer Book 
The award-winning science writers answer such puzzlers as:
What is the theory of continental drift?
What are polarity reversals?
Why are minerals certain colors?
How does wood become petrified?
They deliver captivating reading and easy understanding of the complexities that shaped our planet, as they answer nearly 1,000 of the most often asked questions.

The book is organized into 21 topical chapters, tracing the formation of the universe and the planet, investigating the layers of the Earth, and explaining the formation of mountains and bodies of water. Questions and answers are also devoted to volcanoes, fault lines, caves, fossil fuels, world morphological features, and even the geology of other planets. Entertaining and informative, Handy Geology combines vivid, clear writing with a great format. There?s also a helpful glossary and a resource section on educational places, government organizations, sources of geological supplies, and other references, including geo-magazines and web sites.

The Amateur Geologist says: "This became an instant favorite. Here's a book that you can pick up and learn geology at your pace. You don't have to be structured, just investigate what ever strikes your fancy. Need to just look up a quick question? This book works great for that too. At 491 pages and 2 and 1/4 pounds it's not a pocket or even a backpack book but it should still should be in your vehicle when you're in the field!"

The Belomo 10x handlens is definitely a wonderful tool. A Hastings triplet design that is built like a Swiss bank vault. Optics are superb (razor sharp and bright) with a much wider field of view than my Bausch & Lomb 10x Hastings - which for entomology is a big plus! My collection of hand lenses is fairly large and I also use stereo microscopes for my work, but the Belomo can always be in your pocket ready to use anywhere and enjoy at any time. Its heirloom sturdiness will provide many years of visual pleasure. My first order got lost in the mail and the great folks at Amateur Geologist didn't bat an eye and sent another which was very kind, proving that they're definitely there to help their customers. My sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to them for their fabulous service and wonderful products.
