'It emphasises principles rather than facts. The end-of-chapter problems for students are excellent.' Tim Lutz, University of Pennsylvania
'I am very pleased to see the quality of this text. It will definitely be the best undergraduate petrology text when it appears on the shelf. You have a winner.' C. Page Chamberlain, Dartmouth College
'The presentation is clear and concise, the illustrations extremely useful … Of great utility are the problems at the end of each chapter … This is a fantastic book.' Steven R. Bohlen, President of Joint Oceanographic Institutions
'… a volume which will likely be well thumbed and littered with 'stickies' and other place markers by students and professors alike … a 'must-have' for any self-respecting petrologist …' Elements
'I eagerly anticipated the second edition that included Jay Ague as coauthor to complement Philpotts' expertise in igneous petrology. My high expectations were not disappointed. … Will … be remembered as the first to put transport theory into the teaching of petrology.' American Journal of Science
'This is an ideal book for advanced courses in petrology, and particularly for students who truly want to study and understand this discipline and who are ready to spend time on it … The content is rigorous, in-depth and up-to-date. Those who decide to study it, will get a firm foundation on which they may build future research. I highly recommend this textbook and really regret that I had not the chance to use it during my own university education.' Julita Biernacka, Geologos
