THE STORY OF EARTH The First 4.5 Billion Years, From Stardust to Living Planet

by | Read by Walter Dixon

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Those who have given thought to big ideas such as why the earth seems to be the only planet of its kind in the universe or how life and land work in tandem to create our living world will enjoy this book. The author, a researcher at the Carnegie Institution, has written a book that curious nonexperts will find fascinating and intellectually nourishing. Narrator Walter Dixon’s deep, gentle, reassuring tone works well with the book because he uses it to relate sophisticated scientific concepts in an understandable way. Dixon becomes downright conversational at times, and he pauses effectively to let the information sink in. This makes the book not only accessible but engaging and empowering.
