ESSENTIALS OF GEOLOGY, Fourth Edition is a shorter version of the authors' PHYSICAL GEOLOGY: EXPLORING THE EARTH, Fifth Edition text. In the same tradition, the authors present the content and material in a clear, consistent voice, focusing on plate tectonics in the first two chapters and offering more material on earth history than other texts in the market. The authors also draw the student into physical geology by providing engaging examples, as can be seen in the "Cultural Connection" boxes, a new pedagogical feature in this edition. Chapter opener objectives are now numbered so that students can easily recognize the crucial points of the chapter while reading and then they are numbered again in the chapter summary, for review. The Fourth Edition has numerous new photos that will be of interest to faculty and students alike and offers a new online student tutorial called GeologyNow. GeologyNow is the first assessment-centered student tutorial technology developed for the Geology market. The seamless integration of GeologyNow with chapter concepts emphasizes the connections between the content and students' own lives, through visual 3-D animations and chapter quizzes, in order to develop a greater appreciation for physical geology.
