"By frankly taking the point of view of a participating seismologist, this book is a fresh contribution to the shelf of science for the public."--Robert Phinney, Princeton University "I know of no other book for the general public that presents seismic hazards better thanEarthshaking Science. It offers a great deal to commend: Hough conveys the big picture really well, and hits the nail on the head with important details."--Paul G. Richards, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University "This book is a major contribution to its field, and an excellent summary of our current approaches to understanding earthquakes. All geoscientists should find it a stimulating read, and others with a reasonable grounding in science will be well rewarded for the time spent with it."--William R.
