5.0 out of 5 stars A call to action - the clock is ticking, 17 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Impact Earth: Asteroids, Comets and Meteoroids - The Growing Threat (Hardcover)
This book is a call to action on a par with Rachel Carlson's Silent Spring, in my opinion. It should be required reading for every legislator, teacher and anyone under the age of 30 with hopes of seeing middle and later life. We must get the word out on this book. Austen Atkinson did something very unique in Impact Earth. He added a second book to the end, a fictional account of what it might be like to experience a major impact. If the first book does not get attention, the second surely will. It adds a human element that is missing from other more technical books on this subject. Both parts of Impact Earth are expertly done and written for the lay person in a manner that makes the impact risk clear and obvious to anyone able to read. Austen is a great writer. His style is easy reading and his development is extremely logical and captivating. This is one for every middle school library and a great gift item for the skeptic on your list.

This review is from: Impact Earth: Asteroids, Comets and Meteoroids - The Growing Threat (Hardcover)
An exceedingly detailed yet understandable book that covers everything you could possibly want to know about the threat of comets and asteroids. What was even more exciting about it was the fictional account of an asteroid strike towards the back. It was rich with facts and knowledge and even with no scientific background at all I could understand and follow it well.

Very informative. Thankyou Austen Atkinson for helping me get a first in my dissertation!!
