"... very easy to follow ... A must for all those dealing with civil engineering."
—Prof. D.N. Singh, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India

"I think the topics are very relevant for undergraduates ... . The topics cover basic rock mechanics and deal with subjects most important to a practicing engineer. The content provides a good introduction to anyone who is planning to enter the profession. ... It is an excellent book, very useful for engineering undergraduates and graduates. The book is well written and easy to understand, and I am sure it would be a very popular textbook."
—Jay Ameratunga, Senior Principal, Coffey Geotechnics Pty Ltd, Newstead, Queensland, Australia
