Reviews

'A very comprehensive and complete book spanning all the aspects of stress within the accessible Earth. It is particularly useful in the fields of oil industry, geothermics and seismic hazard.' Tectonophysics
'... a strong and authoritative treatment ... Professor Zoback's book will be a valued guide and reference to geoscientists and engineers.' International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences
'A major advantage of the book is ... that it provides an excellent crossover between aspects of structural geology and reservoir engineering - a link that is all too often overlooked. ... It is customary to have an 'ah but ...', bit towards the end, but I genuinely have very few quibbles with this book. ... I would recommend it to any geologist working in a situation where faults or fractures interact with the present-day stress field.' Tim Needham, Needham Geoscience, Illkley
