This book is a pretty decent textbook. It's rather interesting even if your passion is not geomorphology (mine isn't) and the illustrations are useful. A great feature in this book is that after every couple of paragraphs it gives you a summary of the information contained in those paragraphs for studying. Those summaries are so well-done you could essentially read them and not the text and still get an A in the class.
There is a newer version of this book, but it's almost exactly the same, so I bought this one as a value option and it was not a problem at all. I got an A in the class and the changes in the newer version were minimal and I never noticed them.
The reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is two-fold:
#1 - too much metric and uses feet/miles only in a secondary fashion.
#2 - the CD that comes with it is not worth using at all. Don't even bother installing and using the CD.
