    Superbly written and illustrated

    This book is ideal for both the specialist and general reader. It provides a marvelous understanding of the changes in New Jersey's landscape since the earth was formed, and helps you interpret what you see today.

    Roadside Geology of New Jersey is the latest and among the best

    Roadside Geology of New Jersey is the latest and among the best in a series of Guides that is now over 1/2-century old and covers more than half of the continental United States. Written by David P. Harper formerly of the New Jersey Geological Survey, New Jersey Site Remediation Program, and past president of the New Jersey Geological Association, this guide, like others in the series, is meant to be both accessible to amateur science sleuths and yet rigorous and accurate in presentation of geologic fact. Roadside Geology of New Jersey fully measures up to both expectations.
    Of particular merit in this volume is the outstanding quality of the individual "day-trips" - road guides, somewhat overlapping, of which there are more than a dozen. Almost all illustrations and figures are in color and all of the text is printed on durable paper stock.
    Although, inevitably, one might take umbrage at specific omissions (or perhaps inappropriate emphasis) in a text of this type, the author has clearly strived for a balance between breadth and depth and has hit most of the State's geologic high points.
    Roadside Geology of New Jersey includes an adequate, if brief, section of geologic fundamentals, a glossary, references and an index. It might have been better to omit the glossary and, instead insure that less-well-known terminology be explained in place as it was used. Also some of the author's explanations are a bit obscure and could have benefitted from more thorough editing. In addition the book fails to include any text tying the opening page overall New Jersey geologic map to the individual road guides.
    On the whole, Roadside Geology of New Jersey does this fascinating State geology proud.
