Media reviews

"This book is essential reading for those concerned about the survival of our civilisation far into the future."
Spaceflight

"The book's economical, lucid style is entertaining and accessible to non-experts [...] It also handles technical concepts well, thanks to the author's training in geology and his subsequent work directing educational films."
– Robert S. McMillan, Journal of Geoscience Education

"This is a very good book if you are interested in the history of the K/T impact."
– Peter M. Sheehan
