Paperback (128 pages)
Dougal Jerram manages to captivate the reader from the beginning to the end, and takes him or her on a journey through the fascinating world of volcanoes. Accompanied by great and plentiful illustrations, an informative glossary, the language is personal, passionate, easy to follow, scientifically precise. Despite the rather short volume, it still goes quite in depth and detail.
It's particularly nice to see the second edition stuffed with examples from recent years, on volcanoes that are relatively easy to access and thus, relate to.
