The word "supercontinent" caused me to believe the book would be about Pangaea. While Pangaea is part of the contents, there is much more explored here. The way in which Nield jumps around, parts can be difficult to follow. If there was a flow to this book, I never really found it. Descriptions of prior supercontinents tended to be the most tedious. Perhaps they are more interesting to geologists. Discussion of the people who "discovered" the supercontinents and continental drift is more interesting. (However, the myths of James Churchward, etc. were given too much coverage.) How complex life may be a direct result of a supercontinent prior to Pangaea is also fascinating to ponder.
Will you love Supercontinent? Probably not. But you will sometimes be entertained, and you will have your view of earth's history altered in your mind. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
