Zhuravlev (Author), Julian & Janet Baker (Illustrator), Felicity Cole (Illustrator), Robert & Rhoda . It comprehensively summarizes the evolution of life on the planet earth, with fascinating illustrations of various lifeforms.

Zhuravlev (Author), Julian & Janet Baker (Illustrator), Felicity Cole (Illustrator), Robert & Rhoda Burns (Illustrator), Bill Donohoe (Illustrator), Brin Edwards (Illustrator), Samantha Elmhurst (Illustrator) & 7 more. It also connects the process of evolution with phenomena like continent shifting due to plate tectonics, climate changes across the billion year earth history, atmosphere changes, astreroid impacts and volcanic eruptions. It really gives a wide panoramic view of how this planet evolved and how life evolved.

Excellent, fascinating summary of the logic of the planet earth and the earth's entire 4 billion year geologic time scale. This book is like a modern sequel to Darwin's Origin of Species. It comprehensively summarizes the evolution of life on the planet earth, with fascinating illustrations of various lifeforms. It also connects the process of evolution with phenomena like continent shifting due to plate tectonics, climate changes across the billion year earth history, atmosphere changes, astreroid impacts and volcanic eruptions. It really gives a wide panoramic view of how this planet evolved and how life evolved. Well written, although probably written at a college sophomore level. Reading this book can blow your mind, like tripping on LSD or something. It portrays the earth as a giant computer that constantly plays out these algorithms driven by physical laws that result in species rising and falling. The earth really does not care about its lifeforms. It does not care about you. It is just a heartless molecular computer churning out life forms pitilessly, unconsciously. And no matter how wonderful you think your life is, you can be blown away by an asteroid or a big volcanic eruption at any time. An interesting part of the book is how it shows that at one point in earth's history, when carbon dioxide levels were as high as they are now, the average earth temperature was over 120 degrees, and bizarre animals walked around covered in thick layers of fur--that were designed to insulate them from the heat! The hard logic of the book is also a hard attack on all creationist theories.

Too fraught with vocabulary that will prove British and fleeting. Wonderful plots and drawings.

I read a lot of customer reviews when I am searching for new books to buy, and when I discovered there were no reviews for this fantastic book, I finally resolved to begin writing my own reviews.
I purchased this book in 2001 around Christmas-time at Barnes & Noble, because I could see there were many graphs, charts, and scientific diagrams in it to accompany the text. I LOVE non-fiction reference type books that combine photos/illustrations along with solid scientific text, and this book tops the chart in both categories!
It is quite simply the best book out there detailing everything of importance in earth's entire geologic timescale. From the origins of the planet, to the beginnings of arthropods and trilobites, to the rise of reptiles and mammals, every chapter has eye-popping illustrations and graphs to bring the text alive.
I read A LOT, and even with weekly library trips, I still own hundreds of books. Most of them are reference books for the medical field, IT (Information Technology), or other non-fiction subjects. This book has held its "number one place" in my heart ever since 2001, and I highly recommend it for anyone who considers him or herself a "student of life" and has interest in how all of life evolved on our planet.

I own a 2004 paperback edition, it is quite sturdy but mine does show a lot of ware - from frequent use! I just can not recommend the book highly enough! It covers Earth's geology, tectonics, changes in climate, and evolution of fauna and, to lesser extent, flora over the whole life-span of our planet. It does this in a very concise, approachable and entertaining format. There are numerous graphs, drawings and photographs illustrating various natural phenomena. My 4-year old likes to browse this book for the images of bizarre extinct animals. For a school-age child it holds countless learning possibilities, depending on the child's interests and age. And for an educated adult it provides a coherent, well researched view of the many various aspects of natural history working together, in perspective.
