Summary
This book uses art and science to tell the story of life on earth. The text provides thorough understanding of the latest research and is accompanied by paintings prepared especially for this book. Never before has our planet's evolution been so clearly explained. History is marked by disaster. The book of life explains how mammals, having survived at least one of these disasters -- the impact of a massive comet -- luckily inherited the earth. Next came the rise of modern humans, who would shape the world as no creature has. As this history unfolds, illustrations allow us to observe climate changes, tectonic plate movement, the spread of plant life, and the death of the dinosaurs. We discover the chains of animal survival, the causes and consequences of adaptation, and finally the environmental impact of human life
