Editorial Reviews

Review

A much-needed overview...both as a cautionary lesson and a hopeful demonstration of how life on Earth keeps rebounding from destruction.

-- "Booklist"

A simultaneously enlightening and cautionary tale of the deep history of our planet and the possible future, when conscious life may become extinct.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

A vivid, fascinating story about all the past and future lives of our planet.

-- "Michael Pye, author of The Edge of the World"

If readers have time for only one book on the subject, this wonderfully written, well-balanced, and intricately researched (though not too dense) selection is the one to choose.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

Revealing . . . Effectively linking past and present...with projections for the future and a warning against inaction in the face of climate change.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Want to know the future? Look to the past, the deep past. That's one of the many insights you'll glean from reading Brannen's entertaining, engaging, elegant book.

-- "David Biello, author of The Unnatural World"
