Hutton's Arse Feedback

Comments from readers

Ian Mathieson

I came upon your book from a review in Down to Earth. May I say what a joy to read a real geology tale with just the right amount of comment and science. Just one comment- you use Photo and map of Greyfriars church but no acknowledgement to the publisher -Friends of Greyfriars. Regards Ian Mathieson Director Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project (Scotland's archaeological site in Egypt)

Thanks for producing an excellent book. Been visiting the area for 30 years.Friends have wanted to borrow my copy - they can buy their own! As for windfarms, the less the better. I live in south Lake District and am slowly being surrounded by them,a waste of public money ect.

' 3-6 ft [1-2m] per second' over '20-30 days would seem to me to elevate the liquid from a depth of ten times the 40 miles postulated on P119 but then one or other of us might have been taking more than a dram or two.

I am untrained in Geology but a regular visitor to the North West Highlands. The refreshing personal style of your book has illuminated much of the areas history for me.Thankyou. Your comments on the rapid warming at the end of the Younger Dryas discount the lessons of the feedbacks which must have been involved.For alternative lessons from this see "The Last Generation" by Fred Pearce. (Don't be influenced by the title-its meaning is not the obvious one)
