    In this far-reaching narrative, Weisman explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and vanish without human presence; which everyday items may become immortalized as fossils; why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture, and man-made molecules may be our lasting gifts to the universe.

    Overall

    This book is an absolute must read for anyone who has an interest in science, appreciation for nature, and curiosity of our impact on the world which we share with millions of other creatures. Weisman does a fantastic job of explaining in incredibly captivating detail how the world would regenerate, our structures and creations would meet their eventual demise, and how human development has progressed through the ages to get us to who we are today. This book kept my attention the entire time and has given me a new appreciation for what we've done to this planet and the sadly irreversible effects of our insatiable appetite for plastics. This book isn't one-sided and doesn't neccessarily push a case that we are a plague on the planet, but it does lean more towards that side than the other. Weisman does a good job at covering both sides of the equation.

    Love the book and highly reccomend it to just about anyone. It may change your viewpoint of our culture and have you reevaluate the human role in the Earth's ecosystem.
