Cloud, a biogeologist, gives a spirited overview of scientific knowledge by means of vignettes ranging from the structure of the universe and the origin of elements to the ascendence of Homo Sapiens and the survival problems facing the species. The book is aimed at educated laypersons with basic scientific literacy. The major subdivisions are Cosmos, Earth, Life and Man.
The treatment is, of course, not comprehensive but rather provides an overall structure of current knowledge, punctuated by detailed examinations of questions either still controversial or whose resolution has been particularly important. Addressed in turn are the properties and origin of the elements.
A basic thrust is that, although some of the intermediate steps are still unclear, the overall picture is known for example, 'the question is not whether evolution happened but how it happened'.
Already humans intervene actively, by accident, through their activities ranging from agriculture to testing of nuclear weapons.

The arithmetic indicates that even the essential activities necessary for feeding and housing the unavoidable population of the next century is bound to drastically change the face of the planet.
