Read more'Well organized, beginning with the basic physics (nuclear structure, radioactivity, nucleosynthesis) then proceeding to how geochronometry actually works, including technical details of mass spectrometry and error analysis, then tackling the ways in which various isotope systems have been used to help understand the history of the earth and the solar system.' Doug Macdougall, Emeritus Professor of Earth Science, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego'The book is, in my opinion, well organized. I like the way in which the author has presented the physical fundamentals in the early chapters, then the applications to the evolution of the earth and other parts of the solar system later.'
