The Goldilocks Planet: The 4 Billion Year Story of Earth’s Climate, by Jan Zalasiewicz & Mark Williams
This is one of the best books I’ve read this year. Using the most up-to-date scientific appraisals, the authors describe what is known about the 4 billion year history of Earth’s climate. Written for the layman, the book is easy to read, engaging and superbly written. Highly recommended.
