"Arguably the best work to date in the history of geology".--David R. Oldroyd, "Science" "After a superficial first glance, most readers of good will and broad knowledge might dismiss [this book] as being too much about too little. They would be making one of the biggest mistakes in their intellectual lives. . . . [It] could become one of our century's key documents in understanding science and its history".--Stephen Jay Gould, "New York Review of Books" "Surely one of the most important studies in the history of science of recent years, and arguably the best work to date in the history of geology".--David R. Oldroyd, "Science"
