Summary: Eos, Vol. 92, No. 19, 10 May 2011
This book lives up to its title and does so
in a manner that authors of modern science
textbooks should seek to emulate. The book
is produced as an affordable paperback
and an even more affordable e-book. It con-

more than 250 high-quality illustrations. As
a bonus, a considerable amount of related
material that parallels the book is made
freely available from the author's Web site
(http://magician.ucsd.edu/~ltauxe), includ-
ing the companion PmagPy software pack-
age, which is used throughout the book for
hands-on problem solving.

the text, the book successfully covers many
essentials of paleomagnetism more rigor-
ously than could be done by merely read-
ing about them. To get the most out of this
