    Story
    (427)

    Earth evolves. From first atom to molecule, mineral to magma, granite crust to single cell to verdant living landscape, ours is a planet constantly in flux. In this radical new approach to Earth’s biography, senior Carnegie Institution researcher and national best-selling author Robert M. Hazen reveals how the co-evolution of the geosphere and biosphere - of rocks and living matter - has shaped our planet into the only one of its kind in the Solar System, if not the entire cosmos.

    Gary says: "Makes minerals interesting"
    "Facinating account of how our earth evolved"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Story of Earth the most enjoyable?

    I had never heard an explanation of how the earth how evolved from the evidence of its geology in such a compelling lucid manner.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found that I was absorbing text book-type information nuggets from a well told, well constructed beautifully told story.


    What about Walter Dixon’s performance did you like?

    This was effortless listening, a tribute to both the narrator and author.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I found myself listening and re-listening, to ensure that my non science brain had absorbed every little detail.


    Any additional comments?

    A great combination of subject, author and narrator.
