Charles Darwin's theories, first published more than 150 years ago, form the backbone of how we understand the history of the Earth. In reality, the currently accepted history of life on Earth is so flawed, so out of date, that it's past time we need a "New History of Life".
In their latest audiobook, Joe Kirschvink and Peter Ward will show that many of our most cherished beliefs about the evolution of life are wrong. Gathering and analyzing years of discoveries and research not yet widely known to the public, A New History of Life proposes a different origin of species than the one Darwin proposed, one which includes eight-foot-long centipedes, a frozen snowball Earth, and the seeds for life originating on Mars.
Drawing on their years of experience in paleontology, biology, chemistry, and astrobiology, experts Ward and Kirschvink paint a picture of the origins life on Earth that are at once too fabulous to imagine and too familiar to dismiss - and looking forward, A New History of Life brilliantly assembles insights from some of the latest scientific research to understand how life on Earth can and might evolve far into the future.

Fascinating and concise content presented excellently

This is a scientific book to it's heart, but at the same time easy to follow and listen to. If you enjoyed the science classes in school you will love this book. Kershvink and Ward are well established thought leaders in their profession and present their ideas in an entertaining bold fashion, but always in compliance with the known facts. The speaker of this book reads in a very comforting fashion, which makes it easy to listen to, even for hours!
