Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Welcome home. A place 200 million years in the making.

Long ago, our planet had only one gigantic land mass. Then something monumental happened. That supercontinent ruptured and seven different worlds were born. 

Each of those worlds - or continents - evolved, and continues to evolve, its own way of life. From the jungle of the Congo or the majestic Himalayas to the densely populated wilds of Europe or the comparatively isolated Australasia, Seven Worlds, One Planet explores the natural wonders that give each of our continents its distinct character. Following the animals that have made these iconic environments their home, it discovers spectacular wildlife stories that reveal what makes each of these seven worlds unique. 

With a foreword by Sir David Attenborough, Seven Worlds, One Planet is a stunning exploration of the planet, and the worlds within it, that we call home.

Lovely book, poor production

Fascinating and interesting throughout. I was worried that it would feel like old ground revisited but I enjoyed the whole book, so much that I intend to listen to it again.

The book is only let down by the audible production team. There is not a sufficiently recognisable transition or break between each of the short chapters. This made my mind confused, I sometimes struggled to realise we were now talking about a completely different creature for the first part of each new chapter.
