Reviews

'... what makes this book so special is that, in addition to the 'wow-factor' arising from the over 200 colour photographs, it also offers an excellent synthesis of how the Australian coast has evolved. ... The book is extremely well-written and attractively type-set, and colour photographs and diagrams are used throughout. ... The book is excellent and certainly does credit to the magnificent Australian coast by giving an in-depth and comprehensive insight into its variability and evolution.' The Geographical Journal
