    THE ROAD LESS ROCKY TO EARTH SCIENCE MASTERY

    Now anyone with an interest in earth science can master it -- without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Earth Science Demystified, scientist and writer Linda Williams provides an effective, anxiety-soothing, and painless way to learn or review earth science fundamentals.With Earth Science Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time—at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide offers quizzes at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the knowledge gained from reading the entire book.

    Here's everything you need to:
    * Understand the geological history of the Earth
    * Recognize different types of rock and learn how they were formed
    * Find out how geologists date the Earth and fossils
    * Learn what causes earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, tornadoes, and hurricanes
    * Discover how hot spots, deep ocean ridges, and plate tectonics shape the oceans and land masses
    * Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

    Simple enough for beginners but substantial enough for advanced students, Earth Science Demystified is your direct route to learning or brushing up on this fascinating subject.
