Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supercontinent: 10 Billion Years In The Life Of Our Planet (Kindle Edition)
This is a real page turner even though one might expect the subject matter to be dry as dust (or rocks). The book works as an adventure story. It works as a group of potted biographies of men who, sometimes, were seen to be potty themselves but who were later shown to be very, very right. there are snippets of 'did you know this...' like the fact that Ripon was once in the middle of a vast, continent wide desert somewhere south of the Equator. Wow.
I knew a little of what would be described but my knowledge and my interest have been greatly enlarged and I enjoyed every minute of it happening.
