The story of the physics, chemistry and biology that make up our planet earth. Well written and interesting throughout. Worth reading if you are interested.

The earlier chapters are the most readable; later on the author becomes rather technical. Nevertheless, this is a good resource for those wanted to solidify their awareness of current understandings of earth science and our astronomical origins.
