The Universe Within: Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People
Sweeping. Readers who like readable popular science are those most likely to enjoy Neil Shubin’s The Universe Within: Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People. Instead of a dense presentation of developments in paleontology, physics, biology and geology, Shubin tells a story that will captivate and engage most general readers. He shows how we are connected to the elements that make up the universe. Shubin talks about his own fieldwork with enthusiasm, but never to excess. Most readers will learn a thing or two from this book, and enjoy the experience. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Universe Within from amazon.com.
