Description
Beginning at the moment of creation with the Big Bang, the paleontologist and environmentalist who wrote The Future Eaters and The Weather Makers here offers a fascinating and entertaining chronicle of the evolution of Earth. Tim Flannery, the 2007 Australian of the Year and the cofounder and chair of the Copenhagen Climate Council, describes the formation of the Earth's crust and atmosphere, and the transformation of the planet's oceans from toxic brews of heavy metals to life-sustaining waters. Charting the rise of life on Earth, Flannery considers not only the evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace, but also James Lovelock's Gaia concept of a living planetary ecosystem.

"Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was one delightfully written book that told you everything you'd like to know about humans, the Earth, sex, sperm counts, war, our future, and hundreds of other subjects? Here it is. You'll discover why Tim Flannery's books have made him the rock star of modern science."óJared Diamond
