Joshua Schwartz, California State University
"… a streamlined view of igneous and metamorphic petrology that is most appropriate for a one-semester undergraduate-level course."
Jeffrey M. Byrnes, Oklahoma State University
"… a soon to be very popular igneous and metamorphic petrology textbook, as it is truly written for the undergraduate geology major with just an introductory geology class and mineralogy as their background coursework … I look forward to adopting this book!"
Lawford Anderson, Boston University
"An introductory textbook that presents the basic principles of the subject matter in a simple and concise manner. Frost and Frost do a good job of linking igneous and metamorphic petrology to basic chemistry and major tectonic processes."
Aley K. El-Shazly, Marshall University
"… succeeds in its stated objective: to convey the essential petrologic information that is needed by all geoscientists … will provide students with a solid, clearly written, well-illustrated foundation for understanding igneous and metamorphic rocks. I look forward to using this text in my own undergraduate petrology class."
Calvin G. Barnes, Texas Tech University
"The volume is very well illustrated with abundant clear appropriate maps, figures, and photos; additional color photos are available online. This book should be very successful in meeting the authors' stated objective of providing a concise text for a one-semester undergraduate course; it will also be a valuable resource for geologic professionals."
M. E. McCallum, Choice
"… I can highly recommend this book as a well-organized presentation of the essentials of igneous and metamorphic petrology and their application in an up-to-date mix of modern geochemistry and plate tectonics."
