Geomorphology: A Systematic Analysis of Late Cenozoic Landforms, 3rd edition by Arthur L. Bloom
"This classic text was my first encounter with geomorphology as a young geology student many years ago. Having this text in my first geomorphology course pursuaded me of the practical environmental importance of this discipline and was sufficient to turn me away from the also very interesting study of metamorphic rocks and structure in graduate school. I have been conducting research in geomorphology and on geologically recent earth history ever since."
