Reviews

"If there is one thing that Oxford University Press can produce better than any other publisher, it's a dictionary. This dictionary would be an important supplement to any Earth Science course or related discipline, but is also written so that someone without prior knowledge can be easily introduced to the field. A concise, informative and attractive book that attempts to cover every aspect of Earth Science for the modern world."The Astrobiology Society of Britain

"I marvel at how the editors have compressed so much so clearly"Nature (review for previous edition)

"Can really claim to offer comprehensive coverage of the earth sciences"Times Educational Supplement (review for previous edition)

Needs Fixing

:
This is an expensive application. It does not work on the iPad as illustrated. No virtual keyboard appears for a search function. You have to look for a word by flipping through hundreds of options. There are also very, very few illustrations. This app actually works better than on my iPod. For this price, Oxford needs to do better.
