    Tasmania really is a geologist’s heaven. There is so much depth and diversity in such a small space – much like the state itself! Manchester has chosen 100 sites of interest / significance that are readily accessible to the ordinary traveller. No four day treks or four wheel drive extravaganzas needed. There is a wonderful spread of geology types among the 100. I am fascinated with the subject, so I might be biased – many might find some of the sites pretty uninteresting. But if you want to unde Tasmania really is a geologist’s heaven. There is so much depth and diversity in such a small space – much like the state itself! Manchester has chosen 100 sites of interest / significance that are readily accessible to the ordinary traveller. No four day treks or four wheel drive extravaganzas needed. There is a wonderful spread of geology types among the 100. I am fascinated with the subject, so I might be biased – many might find some of the sites pretty uninteresting. But if you want to understand how the landscape is as it is, this book is invaluable. For the most part, the language is accessible to the uninitiated, though a dictionary will sometimes assist. The illustrations are informative. Pages of labeled fossil images are mouth-watering. The reason I have not given it 5 stars is that it needs a darned good edit. Some of the idiosyncrasies of layout, and errors in language and punctuation obscure the meaning, which is a pity.
