This book occupies a largely unfilled niche within the structural geology/rock mechanics literature. The novel approach that the authors have taken, that of presenting our current knowledge of brittle deformation as determined from laboratory experiments, has led to an informative, readable reference volume that will benefit many scientists. Its range will not solely be restricted to those who work in the field of experimental rock deformation, although many in this field will certainly benefit from the comprehensive review of the techniques involved and considerations of data quality. It should also appeal to those in the fields of structural geology, tectonics...
