Reviews

`Review from previous edition Vanished Ocean is an ideal book for those who are already widely read in natural science. It should appeal strongly to legions of former science students who, having since made their way in the world as accountants and personnel managers, hanker for the interest ad excitement of a life they once glimpsed but were unable to grasp.' Ted Nield, Literary Review `'Vanished Ocean' is an ideal general reader for students and those who are already widely read in natural science.' Ted Nield, Geoscientist `A wealth of nourishing knowledge revealed through the history of Tethyan Realm.' Ted Nield, Geoscientist `'Vanished Ocean' is an ideal book for those who are already widely read in natural science.' Ted Nield, Literary Review `A well argued contribution to one of the great scientific debates of the last 30 years.' Jonathan Beard, New Scientist
