"Takes the reader through a comprehensive synopsis of the topic; through rock dating and time scales, plutonism and neptunism, uniformitarianism and catastrophism, evolution and creationism, and onto continental drift and plate tectonics. Each concept, set into its own historical timescale, details the development and discoveries that have shaped our understanding of geological time, by the people most notably involved...an ideal introduction to the topic most central to any study of the earth sciences." Pete Loader (Teaching Earth Sciences Vol 36 No 1 2011)
