Summary: Educational and Entertaining ‘Fashion Dudes’ in Geomorphology
Rating: 5

For the advanced undergrad or grad student in physical geography or surficial/quaternary geology this would be my number one choice for exploring various philosophies, methods, models and interdisciplinary contexts in geomorphology. Written by the best names in the business who strive to examine the very foundations of landform studies. This could be one of the most cited (recent) geomorphology references ever published, a classic for good reason.

Regarding my review title, see chapter 4 by Sherman for an explanation of ‘fashion’ in Geomorphology.
The entire book is available free online
