The subjects of this dictionary are most of geological terms but there are many terms that also related with geophysics, biology, astrophysics, and geography. Geology is an interesting subject in knowing history of Earth creation, creature evolution, ancient Earth life and Earth condition in the past; even find mine, coal, also oil deposit below Earth surface. Petrogeologist study geology to find mine, coal, or oil deposit. Geophysics scientist study geology for recognize the physical characteristics of Earth component such as magnetism, seismicity, elasticity, Earth thermodynamic, by physical experiments in a specific geological structure which consist of specific rocks and minerals. Biology scientist study geology for tracing the historical evolution of creature in its first appearance until this time. Geographers also study geology for recognize a spatial phenomenon of Earth surface that were formed or influenced with a sequences of geological event.

Very poorly written and researched book. Look at the various fault rock classifications, you don't mention breccia, your definition of a cataclasite is incorrect( it should include terms such as grain flow and grain supported matrix) and it is a brittle deformation product, your definition of a mylonite is also wrong, it is a ductile fault rock(ductile equivalent to cataclasite) and is matrix supported with sigma and delta clasts often occuring. There is a load of other wrongly defined terms in there as well as omission of some very common terms like fault-breccia, diapir, etc.
