Bookviews.com puts Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps at the top of their November “Picks of the Month”
2 Nov 08 – “As we begin the holiday season of Thanksgiving, Christmas and Chanukah, there are any number of wonderful books that would make great gifts.
“By far one of the most extraordinary books about a scientific phenomenon to come along in a long time is Robert W. Felix’s Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps.
“In essence, while Darwin intuited how species evolved, he was unaware of the enormous impact of cyclical magnetic reversals. Briefly stated, new species occur spontaneously when magnetic reversals occur. They also account for mass extinctions which are the rule, not the exception, and have been occurring for the 3.5 billion years of life on Earth.
“These geomagnetic reversals also occur in synch with ice ages and they happen fast!
“Felix, the author of Not by Fire but by Ice, a book that reveals why they occur and how they have affected life on Earth, writes in a manner that even someone with little or no science knowledge can understand. He writes about those major geomagnetic and solar events that have transformed and will transform life on Earth.”
