"A superbly exciting work of popular scientific writing" (AN Wilson The Financial Times)
"A very well written book about geology and geological history" (Sir David Attenborough, The Times)
"We have a new classic... this is popular science at its best; it's beautifully written, constantly witty and excellently illustrated." (Financial Times)
"Imbued with its author's deep sensitivity to shifting atmospheres, his overwhelming passion for England, Wales and Scotland as living bodies pulsing, breathing, twitching beneath our feet, and his contagiously personal view of his subject." (Jonathan Keates Observer)

There are also mind-blowing revelations such as the sea which used to separate approx. England from Scotland down the fault line of Loch Ness - as far away as the UK & Canada today. And only discovered in the 60's.
A scholarly work, this is an ideal holiday book but I've enjoyed it times over since 1996.
Also personal snippets of the authors interest in geology add some light heartedness to quite a big subject. Over all a very good read.
