"The magnificent book fills a need to present the overwhelming and totally convincing evidence that the Earth, the Moon, meteorites, and the solar system are old. . . . Dalrymple is one of the major scientists in the field, writing from firsthand knowledge and experience. His book is both authoritative and delightfully written. . . . This is an enormously important book written by an expert for the general scientific public. It is must reading for all interested in the antiquity of nature."
The Quarterly Review of Biology
"Dalrymple expertly weaves the many disparate and delicate lines of argument into a robust whole. His achievement is remarkable, a marvel surpassed only by the mute testimony of the rocks themselves."
