'Australian writer Tim Flannery is a man of dazzling talents: scientist, climate change activist, academic, explorer. In his latest book, Europe, he also turns time-traveller, invoking HG Wells' fictional invention as he first sets the dials to whizz back 100 million years, before the continent had begun to emerge as a separate entity.' * NZ Noted * 'An exciting book, full of wonder, affection and hope.' * Sunday Times * `A magisterial and very readable scholarly book that will feed your dreaming self all through the winter.' -- Theo Drogan * Irish Times, Best Books of 2018 * `A masterclass in science writing.' * New Zealand Listener (Best Books of 2018) * `Fluent and funny.' * North & South * `[Flannery] is a master storyteller, with an eye for the revealing detail.' * Australian Book Review * `This excellent book kept making me smile from sheer pleasure at what I was learning and how astonishing life on earth really is...If there's a better way to learn about the last 100 million years on earth, I haven't found one.' * Great Escape Books * `A small book full of big ideas...This book doesn't just wow the reader with nifty ideas; Flannery explains how they actually work, with his signature fluency and clarity.' * Australian Book Review on Sunlight & Seaweed * `This new book is among [Flannery's] best...Wonderfully thought provoking...Well informed and sobering.' * Australian on Sunlight & Seaweed * `Accessible and engaging..An enlightening and uplifting view of the future.' * Readings on Sunlight & Seaweed * `This man is a national treasure, and we should heed his every word.' * Sunday Telegraph *
