Rated 1 out of 5 by from waste of money This is a FLYER ! I new it wasn't a book but I expected a folded poster with many types of rocks but its not! Its really a small flyer ( maybe 8x20...a little bigger then a legal size paper.) You can get any of that information on the net for free. Don't waste your money. Wish someone had written this review before a spent my money...I will be returning it tomorrow.
