'... a challenging read ...' New Scientist
'Planet Earth is a book that can be read from start to finish and it is also a book that can be dipped into almost anywhere. There is much here to educate and also to entertain.' Mercian Geologist
This book presents a global picture of our world - how it originated, how it evolved, how it works - and provides the background necessary to assess ways to stabilize it. Although the science is rigorous and quantitative, the book is written in an informal style and is readily accessible.
