Reviews

A superbly exciting work of popular scientific writing -- AN Wilson * The Financial Times *
A very well written book about geology and geological history * Sir David Attenborough, The Times *
We have a new classic... this is popular science at its best; it's beautifully written, constantly witty and excellently illustrated. * Financial Times *
Imbued with its author's deep sensitivity to shifting atmospheres, his overwhelming passion for England, Wales and Scotland as living bodies pulsing, breathing, twitching beneath our feet, and his contagiously personal view of his subject. -- Jonathan Keates * Observer *
