    I really enjoy books about science, and particularly ones that give an historical perspective to our ongoing discovery of scientific knowledge.On the subject of the Earth s magnetism, I have to say that I was almost totally ignorant I know that the Earth has magnetic poles, but that was basically the extent of my knowledge, and I am ashamed to say that it had never occured to me to wonder why the Earth should be magnetic I had no idea that the entire Earth is covered in a magnetic field that p I really enjoy books about science, and particularly ones that give an historical perspective to our ongoing discovery of scientific knowledge.On the subject of the Earth s magnetism, I have to say that I was almost totally ignorant I know that the E...

    Although I knew most of the basic science regarding earth s magnetism from various other readings, this book tied everything together chronologically and in muchdetail In fact, after finishing it I added it to my History bookshelf as well as the Science shelf because it is so much about the various individuals th...

    This reviewer knows precious little about geophysics, so will not be complaining, as others have, that this book was directed at a generalist audience I will complain however about the back cover I realize this is out of the control of the author, and the blame rests with the publisher, but it is a pet peeve of mine when the cover descriptions do not match the content of the book Here the back cover questions how birds and other animals navigating by magnetism the book does not deal with This reviewer knows precious little about geop...

    This book was quite an interesting read for me Generally, a subject like magnetism is split between various publications, classes, and other sources, and only pieces of the story are discovered I enjoyed being able to follow the research of magnetism through time, and reading about the various scientists that contributed to our knowledge on the subject It also took me back to the days of my historical geology in following the development of geology as a science It is amazing how recent theor This book was quite an interest...

    I got almost nothing out of this book but I m not quite sure it s the fault of the author It took me around four months to finally finish because I started it right before summer classes started and read maybe a page or two before passing out each night, finally able to polish it off when classes were over There are a lot of theories terminology here that I didn t remember reading it in the piecemeal way that I did It also required...

    If you are curious about the origin of the magnetic field of the earth, this is a pretty good place to start Turner goes through the history of discovery, the basic physical ideas involved, and our evolving understanding of what turns out to be an extraordinary complicated phenomenon This is another place which demonstrates that as much as we know about the world, we actually know a lot less than I d like to think For instance, when exactly are the poles going to turn What happens when the m If you are curious about the origin of the magnetic field of the earth, this is a pretty good place to start Turner goes through the history of discovery, the basic physical ideas involved, and our evolving understanding of what turns out to be an extraordinary complicated phenomenon This is another place which demonstrates that as much as...

    This book didn t quite live up to my expectations so I ended up skimming a good chunk of it Overall, it just felt like reading a really long Wikipedia entry comprehensive yet condensed list of facts I personally would have appreciatedpresence from the author such as in Brian Greene or Bill Bryson s writing The later chapters wereengaging as those covered topics that were closer to the author s own research era In the end this isof a history book than a book about the under This book didn t quite live up to my expectations so I ended up skimming a good chunk of it Overall, it just felt like reading a really long Wikipedia entry comprehensive yet condensed list of facts I personally would have appreci...

    Very detailed explanation of the history of the attempts to describe the physical forces that create the Earth s magnetic field Interesting parallel while reading is the detailed explanations of the tools and techniques developed to help in...

    A workmanlike accounting of the history of the science of magnetism The early chapters are interesting and insightful but unfortunately the last chapters are sometimes unintelligible.

    This book should be dedicated to all people who still believe that Climate Change is not real.
