This review is from: Earth: Evolution of a Habitable World (Cambridge Atmospheric and Space Science Series) (Paperback)
The blurb on the back says this book is 'excellent, up to date,..' 'remarkably broad-visioned...' 'thrilling reading.' And it is all of these things. This is an excellent book. It covers everything from the origins of the sun, solar system and the elements, Earth history, plate tectonics, climate history, human history, climate change, etc. It's very well written at the level of educated general reader to undergraduate. The only criticism I have is that all of the diagrams and photographs are in black and white which is very disappointing and makes some of them difficult to understand. Otherwise this is a brilliant book which I'm very glad to have.
