Reviews

Skillfully condenses the history of the Earth. ... An expert primer on the history of everything.--Kirkus Reviews
"A fantastic distillation of Earth's history, from one of the world's leading geologists: Andrew H. Knoll has written an engrossing, witty, and eminently readable romp through our home planet's 4.5 billion years, from trilobites and dinosaurs to human origins and our rapidly changing modern times."--Steve Brusatte, New York Times bestselling author of The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs
