Reviews

"... this book is extremely well written and easy to read ... I would highly recommend this book as an excellent introduction to the field in university courses, to those new in petroleum industry, to nongeoscientists working with geologists, and those interested in a review of petroleum geology. I recommend Selley's text for its easy and clear text and 332 illustrations, especially for college students and those interested in concise review. This text will carry forward aspects of petroleum geology into the XXI century." Marcio R. Mello, Center of Excellence of Geochemistry "This comprehensive, stimulating book conveys information with intelligence, clear illustrations, and marvelous wit. The author writes with clarity and authority and with a grasp of the subject matter that is lightly presented." Fouad Michael, Western Geophysical, Houston, Texas, The Leading Edge "... an authoritative piece of work written by an author with over 30 years experience. If you require an overview of petroleum geoscience, I recommend you buy the Elements of Petroleum Geology." Giancario Rizzi, Core Carbonates, PESGB Review
