This review is from: The Hidden Landscape: A Journey into the Geological Past (Pimlico, 136) (Paperback)
This is quite simply one of the best books I've ever read. The book explains why the landscape of Britain is the way it is, and also talks a bit about the different sorts of plants that grow in different areas. The book relates scenery to the underlying geology, and explains how Britain has evolved. I'd have liked more colour photographs, but that presumably would have made the price soar. It is accessible to anyone; background in geology isn't necessary to enjoy this wonderful book.

This is a helpful and concise review, unlike the rather long winded American one further down. However, the author of this review is probably already quite knowledgible about geology and does not need the diagrams that would have made this book really useful and even more enjoyable.
