'A comprehensive range of worked examples is included...The book provides a clear description of the relevant techniques and the strengths and limitations of these techniques...written in a lively style, accompanied by a large number of illustrations...will be of considerable assistance to geotechnical engineers in teaching, research, and practice. It will remain a valuable reference for some time to come.' - Applied Mechanics Reviews
' The first book devoted to this subject, this gives a unified presentation of the theory and application of the techniques.' - The Structural Engineer
