Product description


Extraordinary book. (Times Literary Supplement)

I have rarely learned so much in so few pages, and this book...has the making of a minor classic. (Geographical)

It builds to a satisfying picture of how our planet's history is etched into every fragment of the pebble. (New Scientist)

Impressively skilful narrative...Geology has a gifted new popular science writer. (New Scientist)

About the Author

Jan Zalasiewicz is a Lecturer in Geology at the University of Leicester, before that working at the British Geological Survey.
