Of the first edition:

"Explanations and discussions of the most important principles and concepts in stratigraphy, a variety of sedimentary basins and fossils, the most common erosional and depositional structures, a range of continental and (marginal) marine sedimentary environments, and the most important resources (‘the riches’) from sedimentary rocks, all feature. Another of the book’s traits is that Jones deliberately uses simple (but not simplistic) terms. Jargon that could not be avoided in the main text of the book is explained plainly in a 5-page glossary." —The Holocene
