Book Description:

The showdown is upon us. On one side, three billion years of evolution, tens of millions of species, an extraordinarily complex and diverse ecosystem. On the other, over six billion people, nearly 600 million cars, an unprecedented human assault on the environment. The stakes could not be higher—for the Earth and for us.

About the Author:

Niles Eldredge is chair of the Committee on Evolutionary Processes and curator of the Division of Paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History.
