I agree! This is a fascinating book to read!
It tries to explain the formation of planet earth and specifically the area we presently know as Southern Africa in a comprehensive way, without being too technical. The amount of data given is however a little overwhelming for a novice, and it really needs a second read.
Also speaks about the co-development of biological life, with the planet. In this way it again opens your eyes to the importance of the whole eco-system, and not just certain glamour-species.
This book also has the effect to remind one of the mistery of life. Strange for a book aimed at explaining the world we know!
Get this book!
