As with Fortey s other books I really enjoyed this and that seems important with this one since it s about geology which is not something that s ever been a particular interest of mine Fortey has a discursive conversational style while still getting in a lot of information and technical language And in all of his books it s a sort of travelogue too which is uite interestingIt s hardly a completely exhaustive history of Earth but it takes exemplars from various geographies and shows how they apply to the whole of the planet It works uite well though it is still a pretty dense book
