Excellent overview of Earth Science! Well written, with informative information on geology, meteorology, oceanography, and planetary science. Nice study guide or enjoyable reading for anyone interested in Earth Science. Contrary to what the previous reviewer mentioned, ice and salt (halite) are minerals. Highly recommend book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In the first section of the book about minerals it states that two good examples of minerals are ice cubes and table salt. This is not true because neither ice cubes nor table salt occur naturally. It has been a while since I was taught Earth Science but I knew something about the statement did not seem right to me. I googled it to make sure it was correct ( I am trying to study and want to learn the right facts ) and I found that the examples are not in fact minerals. I am dissapointed and wonder how many more slip ups are hidden in this book.
