-Fred Boadu, Duke University, USA

"As a professor and civil engineering professional, I found this 8th edition of Craig's Soil Mechanics to be everything a beginning engineering student is looking for in an introductory textbook on soil mechanics... I would highly recommend this as one of the finest textbooks on the topic of soil mechanics."
-Gregory Ohrn, Northern Arizona University, USA

"This valuable textbook is highly recommended to students, engineers, and educators in the field of geotechnical engineering."
