Überblick:Pressestimmen 'Timefulness is a charmer and makes a strong case for thinking like Bjornerud.'---Heather Smith Sierra'One of the most important books of recent times.'---Marcus Smith host BYU Radio's Constant Wonder'Clear well-paced [and] witty.'---John Wilson First Things'In this trenchant study Bjornerud calls for a new geological literacy to instill deeper knowledge of planetary rhythms and processes.'---Barbara Kiser Nature'[Timefulness is] a profound meditation on the richness depth and entanglements of geologic time . . . elegantly condensing the landmark tomes of geology from James Hutton's Theory of the Earth . . . to John McPhee's Annals of the Former World.'---Robert M. Thorson Wall Street Journal'Timefulness is a delightful and interesting read. The author's cadence and the illustrator's aforementioned figures made me feel as though I was having a glass of wine with a friend who was explaining geologic history while sketching on a napkin.'---David R. Wunsch Science'With Timefulness . . . [Bjornerud] delivers a brisk biography of Earth. Aside from charting the rise of mountains and the transformation of the atmosphere she shows us why-given an uncertain future-taking the long view is more critical than ever before.'---Matt Huston Psychology Today'It is always a challenge to make geology accessible to a popular audience but Timefulness is never impenetrable and is sparing in its use of jargon. New Scientist readers will have little difficulty following the heartfelt narrative. Bjornerud's book is a manifesto for humanity - but on a very long timescale.'---Mick O'Hare New Scientist'Bored? Anxious? Busy? Try considering time as a geologist would--in segments of years or hundreds of years. Understanding the rhythm and pace of the planet we live on is what Bjornerud calls 'timefulness.' It all seems unfathomable until we begin to fathom it--and realize that thinking on this scale might be the only way we can truly understand (and save) the world.'---Emily Temple Literary Hub'[Timefulness] is an antidote to the new climate report (not to mention raging fires and floods around the world) that seems bereft of hope for humanity's future. . . . Bjornerud argues that if we all can change the way we view our world and our place in it adopting an approach grounded in 'timefulness ' we'll be able to create a more sustainable future not just for ourselves and the next generation but for many generations to come.'---Sarah Rothbard Zócalo Public Square Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Marcia Bjornerud is professor of geology and environmental studies at Lawrence University.
