The author, Paul Lyle, uses examples from his own experience to both illustrate and illuminate stories in deep time. under the title "Time's arrow" he examines a series of non repeatable events and contrasts them with "Time's cycle" where the processes are repeatable and are still in operation today.This book presents a very plausible defence of the concept of deep time, in an age where there are still millions of people, including many in the USA, who think differently. Paul argues for a greater understanding and appreciation of deep time, particularly in a world where resources are being over exploited.The book isn't written primarily for geologists, after all we are the converted, instead it will appeal to environmentalists and policy makers, for whom a better understanding of deep time is a powerful tool in their argument.Price includes postage & packing.
