Publisher's Summary

In this classic work that continues to inspire its many fans, James Lovelock deftly explains his idea that life on Earth functions as a single organism. Written for the non-scientist, Gaia is a journey through time and space in search of evidence with which to support a new and radically different model of our planet. In contrast to conventional belief that living matter is passive in the face of threats to its existence, the book explores the hypothesis that the Earth's living matter - air, ocean, and land surfaces - forms a complex system that has the capacity to keep the Earth a fit place for life.

Since Gaia was first published, many of Jim Lovelock's predictions have come true, and his theory has become a hotly argued topic in scientific circles. Here, in a new preface, Lovelock outlines the present state of the debate.

    "A good way to digest a dense book!"

    I had been trying to read this book for a while and by having it piped straight into my ears worked wonders. I could zone out at the irrelevant sections and bookmark and make notes in the relevant parts.

    "Not an easy book to listen to"

    The science and ideas in the book are fascinating. For a non scientist it is impossible to know if the science he puts forward is correct or not. He does not explain how or why he thinks Planet Earth has achieved its state of Gaia.
