"… 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."
