From the reviews:
"This book ... is an encyclopedic assemblage of basic and practical science on state-of-the-art engineering technology dealing with the behavior of earth materials subject to earthquakes and derivative effects. ... Hundreds of graphs, charts, and mathematical relationships are skillfully integrated with the text and photographs. This volume is truly monumental. It should be in the libraries of all geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (T. L. T. Grose, Choice, Vol. 46 (2), October, 2008)
