The Ages of Gaia: A Biography of Our Living Earth

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1995 - Biology - 255 pages
In his first book, Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth, Jim Lovelock proposed a startling new theory of life: the Earth, its rocks, oceans, atmosphere and all living things, are part of one great organism, evolving over the vast span of geological time. In this sequel, he examines environmental and scientific issues in detail, including the greenhouse effect, acid rain, the depletion of the ozone layer, and the destruction of tropical forests.

Definitely not a casual read for the laymen. The narrative is a bit hard to follow and even harder to follow if you are not well versed in the geological subject and theories. Read full review
