As part of my outreach activities I have taken to writing books. I have been writing research papers since 1996, and have written over 50 scientific articles on a number of subjects. It can sometimes be difficult to access the information in research papers written for the science community, and that's where books come in :-)

Writing books helps to communicate some of my knowledge to a wider audience and I hope you fine them useful and interesting. I have started with books involving igneous rocks and volcanoes, and will soon be expanding into other areas of the Earth Sciences.

My Books

Currently I am writing and updating books and papers all the time. My current book titles are:

  • Introducing Volcanology: a guide to hot rocks
    ......"This is the third title in a series of introductory books for adults and follows' Introducing Geology' and,' Introducing Palaeontology' and follows the same format, and at the same price. This volume has been a long time coming, but I have to say that wait has been worthwhile. It does not disappoint." .....Excerpt from a review in ....Down to Earth, November 2011. 
  • The field description of igneous rocks
    ......" This book has it all. A must for any student working on or around igneous rocks. The diagrams are spot on and the examples are up to date. The book is a handy size, not too big and not too small. Good value for money: if you are going mapping and expect to encounter anything igneous or volcaniclastic it would be foolish to leave without this book." .....Excerpt from a review AMAZON, Feb 2011.
