Summary Earth An Intimate History

Read ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Richard Fortey Summary Earth An Intimate History 108 Onics came to rule the geophysical landscape and how the evidence is written in the hills and in the stones And in the process he takes us on a wonderful journey around the globe to visit some of the most fascinating and intriguing spots on the plane. I really liked the subject material in this book and I liked the fact he used a lot of easy to understand examples but I think he talked a little too long about some of them I would have loved this book if it had been about 14 13 shorter I m not sure if this is because I have a strong background in geology and didn t need to have such an in depth example to understand or what but parts of the book were seriously difficult to slog throughThat being said when he was on top of his game this book was great Parts of it flew by and were really riveting I partially attribute this to the fact he covered such a wide range of subject matter in his book not all of it is interesting to everyone I for one am tired of faults and basalts too much geology on the west coastOverall a great book for people who want to know about geology but don t want a super technical explanation and want a lot of examples they can see or visualize And don t mind the the verbosity of British Academics A great book for people with a lot of background in geology too as long as skipping chapters that don t interest them as much doesn t bother them I know that I have a really hard time skipping parts of books I feel like I have to read the whole thing

Who d have thought that a book about rocks would be so compelling I uite literally sat up at night reading this till 2 am over various nights Richard Fortey explains why the continents have their shape and form In doing so he describes how paleogeologists worked out the system of tectonic plates that undergird this world I ve known about tectonic plates and supercontinents and that stuff from school textbooks but Fortey makes it fascinating and compelling because he structures each chapter by looking at the evidence of the rocks in a particular area and from that evidence describes how geologists worked out how that area must have been built up From the basic premise that physical effects of erosion and heat metamorphosis of rocks that we can observe now worked in the same way and at the same rate in the past he shows us how paleogeologists worked out how the continents have their present form working back 45 billion years to the creation and breaking up and recreation of multiple supercontinents over the course of Deep Time It s like a detective story but for rocks and all buoyed up with lush prose on the landscapes before him The only thing that I would have loved to have had was videos to accompany the text But that is what youtube is for I guess Mind officially boggled now
