About this book

Each chapter of Earth: The Power of the Planet examines one of the Earth's most powerful forces – meteor impacts, plate tectonics, the ocean, the atmosphere and ice – and explore their central role in keeping the Earth alive. These are the forces that drive our planet, the powers that shape the Earth and affect its destiny. Spectacular graphics will present the familiar in a striking new light and will allow us to go back in time to discover the critical events in the Earth's past.
