Reviews

'The author writes lucidly and well, and the book offers a comprehensive overview of all things related to reversals ... The book definitely belongs on the shelves of all researchers and graduate students working with aspects of reversals and should be purchased by all research libraries.' Geological Magazine
"Professor Jacobs has not only succeeded in thoroughly covering the basics of reversal studies, but he has also provided an up-to-date review of the ongoing controversies. The book is therefore of interest both to specialists, for whom it is an important reference source, and to the more general reader, for whom it provides an excellent review of the subject...will be of great value both to the general reader and the specialist...an excellent basic introduction, coupled with a very evenhanded and informative review of the most recent controversies." Mike Fuller, American Scientist
"...The `heart' of the book covers excursions of the magnetic field, models and possible reversal mechanisms, and transition fields." Geotimes
"The author writes lucidly and well, and the book offers a comprehensive overview of all things related to reversals....remarkable in its clarity....This intrinsically difficult material is made very accessible without undue mathematical treatment....[A]fter reading the book one comes away with an excellent overview of a field of research that will remain active for decades to come. The book definitely belongs on the bookshelves of all researchers and graduate students working with aspects of reversals and should be purchased by all research libraries." R. Van der Voo, Geological Magazine
"...an interesting book that provides extra insight and a different perspective on paleomagnetic reversals....will become essential reading for magnetostratigraphers everywhere." A. Ewan Campbell, The Leading Edge
