This is an introduction to wave and tidally dominated landforms, including beaches, cliffs, dunes, estuaries, mudflats and salt-marshes. Working from basic principles the author discusses the physical mechanisms by which this wide variety of landforms is produced and maintained. The book is well-written in an easy and often humorous style. The maps and diagrams are clear and precise. The verdict must be that this book is the best available synthesis at undergraduate level of coastal geomorphology and thus it should be widely read. Its competitive pricing and clear style should ensure its popularity with students of both general and coastal geomorphology.
