"I highly recommend this book for geology students and professionals in the field of petroleum geology. Non-geoscientists who would like to learn about the oil and gas industry would benefit from this book. Hyne presents the material in an easy-to-read format with many illustrations to aid the reader in visualizing subsurface geologic conditions."Bednar DM Jr. Geotimes 47, no. 9
