Product Description


"… Hencher has penned a book on his experiences that provides insights for students, young professionals and seasoned pros working in engineering geology…The excellent book provides practical solutions and example methodologies to address engineering geology challenges which are worthwhile for those practicing in the field. This book is highly recommended for practicing engineering geologists in America who would like to learn about the geoengineering challenges found in other parts of the world and the innovative solutions offered."
―The Professional Geologist, 2014

"This book meets its stated aims and should be required reading for aspiring young engineering geologists, or their seniors, to help make them aware of their roles and responsibilities. It would do no harm for this book to be read also by geotechnical engineers who need to be clear about the geologist’s role in the project team."
―Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology

"The perspective, depth, and detail contained in Hencher’s Practical Engineering Geology make it highly desirable for all practicing engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers to have in their libraries. …. a must have volume. … Hencher’s book has plenty of content for all serious engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers."
–– Environmental & Engineering Geoscience

"Each chapter contains straightforward didactic boxes that focus either on a case in point, good working practices or key terms of relevance to each topic."
––Environmental Earth Sciences

HASH(0xa12b7d50) out of 5 stars Solid Book. Very readable. Jan. 28 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All civil engineers should read this, as should all engineering geologists. Lots of case histories for slopes, foundations etc.
Good writing style, laugh out loud funny at times. Very little maths which will confuse the engineers, it's a book aimed at improving knowledge rather than a design cookbook.

HASH(0xa1290324) out of 5 stars Fake book... Feb. 27 2015

This book is a fake book. It has the correct cover, but the internal pages are from some other random book. I never review products on here because it is a waste of my time, but this is absolutely uncalled for. See picture.

Great for basic stuff and to brush up on other topics. A great introduction to other books that may delve more deeply in what you're interested in.
