Description

With its strong focus on readability and illustrations, this trusted best seller makes an often complex subject accessible to beginning students. It offers a meaningful, non-technical survey that is informative and up-to-date for learning basic principles and concepts. For the Tenth Edition, the text's design and figures have been updated, and the chapter on climate change has been revised significantly. The GEODe: Earth CD-ROM is now available online with a new interface.
