Steve Kesler is co-author on two books that were published this year. The first is Ressources Minérales, an introductory text on metal deposits, which was published in French by Dunod. Steve was third author on that behind Nick Arndt at Grenoble and Clement Ganino at Nice. The second book, which had the same authors but with Steve second behind Nick, is entitled Metals and Society and was published by Springer (in English). This is a more advanced introduction to metal deposits with a broader view that includes some societal issues. Both books are second editions, and Steve’s involvement in them came about because he reviewed the first editions and was “invited" to help improve some shortcomings that he noted. We will have to leave it up to the next reviewers to see if that actually happened.
