South Africans live in a geologically fascinating environment yet most people living here know very little of the physical environment around them. To date much of what is known of geology is described in dense academic texts with their own scientific language making it very inaccessible to the lay reader. This new book by Terence McCarthy of the School of Geosciences at the University of the Witwatersrand addresses an important need by providing answers to common questions that anyone who has travelled the country would like answered without becoming lost in technological jargon. It is not just a description of geological processes but draws on many fields to provide integrated informative answers to the questions posed.
