Annals of The Former World?

  1. Apr 18, 2006 #1
    Anyone read this book by John McPhee? I'm almost finished and it has been one of the most delightful reads I've come across in a long time. It's a really wonderful way to introduce yourself to the topic of geology.

    I understand it's a broad overview of intro geology and perhaps out-of-date/wrong/over-simplified in some specifics, but do any geologists have an opinion on this book?

    I haven't read it, but on Amazon.com people liked it, they said the same thing as you said.
