In this incredible expedition into the origins, workings, and evolution of our home planet, John Gribbin does what he does best: takes four and a half billion years of mind-boggling science and digs out the best bits.

From the physics of Newton and the geology of Wegener, to the environmentalism of Lovelock, this is a must-read for Earth's scientists and residents alike.
