Although this book makes no claim to providing a comprehensive guide to layered intrusions in general, it should be a widely welcome resource for undergraduate and graduate teaching and a valuable reference for professionals. It furnishes an excellent introduction to modern methods of investigation of igneous layered intrusions and is an updated source of ideas and reference.
Ronald F. Emslie, Economic Geology, April 1997
..This book represents a valuable attempt to bring together a variety of experts on different layered igneous intrusions into a single monograph, and will undoubtedly be embraced as an important reference for studies on layered rocks.
Mineralogical Magazine, 1997
...this is an up-to-date and exhaustive book in a fast-evolving field. If not an indispensable reference for workers on layered igneous rocks, it is nearly so. Certainly it is an immensely useful source. Parts of the volume, particularly the opening chapters. will enrichen and enliven university seminars and advanced courses in igneous petrology.
