Reviews:

“With this attention to detail, and rigorous adherence to clarity and exactness in description, this edition will consolidate the standing achieved by the earlier editions as a most authoritative and comprehensive book in its field. It will continue to serve as a leading reference work for geoscientists interested in structural geology, tectonics and petrophysics as well as for civil, mining and petroleum engineers.” (Petroleum Geoscience)

"...I consider this book to be an invaluable reference for studying and understanding the fundamental science at the base of rock mechanics. I believe this to be a must-have textbook and I strongly recommend it to anyone, student or professional, interested in the subject." (Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering)

"An excellent book, very well presented, and is a must for the shelves of serious engineers and scientists active or interested in the fields of rock mechanics and rock engineering.... Highly recommended." (South African Geographical Journal, 2008)

Book Description:

Since the publication of the first edition in 1969, Fundamentals of Rock Mechanics has been widely regarded as the most authoritative and comprehensive book in its field. Out of print for many years, this classic book is now available in its revised 4th edition. Extensively updated throughout, this new edition contains substantially expanded chapters on poroelasticity, wave propagation, and subsurface stresses, as well as entirely new chapters on rock fractures and micromechanical models of rock behavior. Beginning with a detailed discussion of fundamental concepts such as stress and strain, this text offers a thorough introduction to the subject before expertly delving into a fundamental, self-contained discussion of specific topics. Unmatched in the breadth of its treatment of rock mechanics, the new edition of this highly praised text is an invaluable resource for all geologists, geophysicists, and geotechnical engineers working in the field today.

From the Inside Flap:

Clean energy, simply put, has all the earmarks of being one of the best investment trends ever. Better yet, it is still very early in the game and the bulk of the money has yet to be made. This book provides investors with a straightforward guide on how to invest in the diverse and fast-moving clean energy sector.

The demand for new and cleaner forms of energy comes not only from climate change and energy security concerns, but also from the sheer amount of new energy generation that will be needed to satisfy the world's fast-growing needs. World energy demand will grow 57% by 2030 and $4 trillion of new power generation assets are needed by 2030, according to official energy agencies. With this huge target market, the clean energy industry can easily grow at double-digit annual rates for decades.

Clean energy includes very different sub-sectors including solar power, wind power, fuel cells, geo-thermal, biomass and biogas, wave and tide power, efficient appliances and lighting, efficient buildings, smart meters, advanced power storage, hybrid battery technology, biofuels, cleaner coal, carbon trading, and others. Each of these sub-sectors features different technology, growth drivers, and players.

With Profiting from Clean Energy, respected investment analyst Richard Asplund provides an in-depth explanation of the technology and industry structure behind these sub-sectors and in the process identifies more than 150 stocks related to clean energy. Asplund provides criteria for choosing the best clean energy stocks and offers an investment opinion on each of the main clean energy sub-sectors. He also discusses how to invest in clean energy, whether through buying individual stocks, investing in green exchange-traded funds or mutual funds, or trading the biofuel and carbon credit markets.

In short, this book provides an easy way for investors to quickly become experts in the clean energy industry and discover its many exciting investment opportunities.

This book also has a companion Web site (www.ProfitingFromCleanEnergy.com) that will continue to provide essential information about this evolving topic. On it, you'll find resource links for further research, industry conference lists, clean energy video clips, and much more. In addition, you can sign up for a free newsletter to receive timely news about the clean energy industry as well as updates to this book.
