I absolutely loved this book!

It's been awhile since I found myself totally engrossed within the pages of a non-fiction book, but authors Steve & Matthew Murrie managed to keep my attention from the first page to the last with EVERY MINUTE ON EARTH. More importantly, the authors deliver exactly what the title promises -- totally fun facts about things that happen on Earth every sixty seconds.

The book is broken down into eight main categories: Earth, Space, The Human Body, Technology, Animals, Food, Pop Culture, and Sports. Each category is also followed by activities that you can do yourself (or with friends!) that are fun, easy, and awesome!

So, what exactly does happen on Earth every sixty seconds? Here are just a few examples:

2,000 thunderstorms occur.
45 million gallons of water go over Niagra Falls.
2,271 working satellites orbit Earth.
A hair grows 0.00027 inch.
954 camera phones are sold.
15,000 gallons of air are inhaled by a blue whale.
21,000 pizzas are baked.
180 Barbies are sold.
115 soccer balls are made -- and 61 of them are in Pakistan.

Totally cool, right? And these are just a few of the amazing facts you'll find in this book! Believe me, everyone needs a copy of EVERY MINUTE ON EARTH in their personal library. Just think, you can learn something new every minute (and maybe find yourself added to the next addition of this great read!).

I found the book fascinating. It would be great for preteens and older grade school students. I plan on buying three more - one for my 13 year old nephew and one for each of my married kids (to use as their kids get older and ask more questions).

Every Minute On Earth
This work is extremely useful. It may be a cliche to say so, but the book is both educational and entertaining. Further, the facts are accurate and verifiable, and the illustrations also add something. I particularly appreciated that the authors used metric measurements as well as the English system.
I can see this book as a good supplementary text at the Middle School level, but can be enjoyed by the general reader. It could find a niche in science as well as social studies.
I wish that there had been biographies included on the authors, who are father and son.
Read and enjoy!

I purchased this book for a young man's Christmas present after reading favorable reviews.

I glanced through the book and it seemed like just the right gift full of facts for the curious mind of a twelve year old boy. I was right. After he opened the gift and was reading it to himself, I heard things like, "Mom did you know...?" and "Dad, guess what...?"

If you are looking for a book for young adults that will keep their attention, this is the one.

My son has always loved these type of books. This one is no different. It is a wonderful way to give them something to do instead of nintendo's/Wii/etc. The only thing you have to be prepared for is constant..."Mom, listen to this......" Not a bad problem to have!
