If you do not know anything about geology this book is fine for a "get your feet wet" read. If you do know a little geology then this book will just anger you.

When did plate tectonics begin? . Here’s a fun fact: Earth is the only planet in our solar system whose name doesn’t come from a Roman or Greek god (yes, including Pluto). The Earth’s temperature also would have surged dangerously because of all of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Both the asteroid and volcanic activity hypotheses are backed up by significant scientific discoveries. The name Earth comes from the Old English and German words for ground, but no one knows for sure when it was coined, or by whom.

The result is two dozen books in the earth sciences for junior high and high school readers in three different series: "Discovering Earth Science," "The Changing Earth," and "The Living Earth.

Published on Mar 9, 2016 . Plate tectonics unraveling the mysteries of the earth. Published in: Data & Analytics. 3. This highly illustrated series examines, at introductory and general readership level, the world of geology. The volumes cover everything from the basic building blocks of geological study, fossils and minerals, to the complex workings of plate tectonics. The author also discusses how plate tectonics has profoundly affected the evolution and extinction of species, and how it has shaped other planets in the universe.

Explains the theory of continental drift and shows how this activity has affected the Earth's geological composition.

Very thorough and easy to read. Includes information on climate change. Reviews tectonics of solar system planets and their moons. Well written.

I never had a chance to take a geology course during college and several years after graduating decided to buy this cheap geology text to learn something about the topic. (...)and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. Like the Oct 2003 reviewer I was a bit worried by the July 2003 review. I agree that the text does need a bit of editing, all the photos are in black and white and most are from the western United States, and the writing will not leave your heart racing. But the book is reasonably concise and I found it digestible by taking in a chapter or two at a sitting. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it, but if you find it used for less than that and simply want a concise intro it will suffice.

As a chemist I learned that the oil companies are the major companies who give jobs to chemists. It is similar with geologists: the best industrial jobs go to people who can find new oil pockets.
Plate techtonics has shown us where the ancients continents were joined
so that we know that oil in the north sea implies oil in Alaska, for instance. I'm reviewing this book because the coverage of oil and coal resources as well as gold and other mineral wealth is pretty much left out.
The geologist has been at work finding these resources since the science began. As a History of the geological world this book is pretty good,
but as a reference of practical instruction it fails.
