Reviews

`Review from previous edition The directing theme of humanity's ultimate mark on the Earth is handled imaginatively and carefully, and gives pause for thought. It works even better, I would say, as an entree to modern Earth sciences.' Michael Benton, Times Higher Education `A very serious, very informative book.' Geographical. `A fascinating and thought provoking read.' Adventure Travel `A wonderfully thought-provoking and fascinating look at the impression we're leaving on our planet. Zalasiewicz...does a fantastic job.' Chris Turney, www.Nature.com `'The Earth After Us' is a thoroughly inspirational book.' Chris Turney, www.nature.com `A fantastic introduction to the world around us taken from a highly original angle.' Chris Turney, www.Nature.com `Zalasiewicz presents an elegant and authoritative primer on the earth sciences....this book is beautifully written.' Times Higher Education Supplement. `This is a wonderful, elegant, short book.' Michael Benton, Times Higher Education Supplement `A delightful retelling of how Earth's geoscientists reconstructed its history.' Nature Geoscience. `I highly recommend this book for geoscientists in general.' William R Ruddiman. Nature Geoscience. `Elegantly written book, one of the best of recent geology popularisations.' New Scientist.
