“I found this book attractive in scope, easy and useful to assimilate, and certainly highly interesting. It conveys the skills of its authors as well as their immense enthusiasm for their science; I recommend this book most highly.” (Geological Journal, 12 January 2014)
“Certainly this book is worth recommendation, not only as a valuable handbook but also as a book which offers new hints for further research on the problems mentioned within.” (Pure Appl. Geophys, 1 April 2013)
“This is definitely a book to borrow when you next have a sighting of the OUGS library.” (Open University Geological Society Journal, 1 November 2012)
“The volume is well presented and clearly written by authors who are leading authorities in their different fields; it succeeds well in its stated objective of providing an accessible introduction to the subject and it should encourage others to get involved.” (American Mineralogist, 1 October 2012)
“In summary, this is a well-organized and thorough study of a developing field in whole-earth studies. Many of the papers stress that their studies are in the early stages and need much more data to help refine the models. While clearly aimed at a specialist audience, there is still much here to interest people in other areas of the geosciences.” (The Leading Edge, 1 August 2012)
“Certainly this book is worth recommendation not only as a valuable handbook but also a book which offers new hints for further research on the problems mentioned within.” (PAGEOPH's, 2012)
""The book is logically organised, from inside the Earth (core and mantle) outward to the atmosphere . . . It will certainly be a useful reference work for academics, even those of us working with, and familiar with, the timescales of magmatic processes. Furthermore it's a handy mid-sized paperback, easy to toss into a carry-on and dip into en route to the next conference or workshop."" (Elements, 1 August 2011)
""I would recommend this book to any serious student of magmatic processes and expect that it will stand as a useful source book on timescales for some time to come."" (Bull Volcanol, 2011)
