Learn the history of the Earth, 27 Dec 2010
This book does not act as textbook for rock study, nor does it just describe a pebble. Instead the pebble is used as a vehicle for leading you through to show how the Earth developed over geological time. The concepts are nicely explained with just enough insight to intrigue but not too much to lose you. I guarantee you will learn something new, even if you are a in the field of geology.
