OK, I had to give up half way through this book. Not because I didn't find it useful, but because I found it way to boring to actually read. After all, this is a textbook, albeit from 1971. Normally these older textbooks are much easier to read than modern textbooks. This one was no exception to that rule. It was fairly easy to read. It is just that I've been over this material a few dozen times before and I couldn't force myself to read it again.

For those that are looking to read this book, it has everything and anything you'd want to know about sedimentary rocks if you're a beginner to the field and a little bit more. It is quite heavy on the chemistry in parts, so be prepared! The diagrams are nice and simplified compared to what I'm used to in the more modern textbooks where they cram a lot of stuff into one place.

Because it is from 1971, there are quite possibly a lot of things in this book that are not up to date for study of the scientific field. I would also not recommend this book for use as a historical document. There aren't any fun tidbits about this or that as a history book, but there are quite a few random facts that you'd not get from a more modern day textbook, either.
