Over the past decade there has been a revolution in our understanding of these apocalypses, the legacy of which lives on in the scars of the Earth's ancient rocks. Armed with new technology, scientists have been able to begin piecing together a picture of our planet's past. The bad news is that it looks eerily like our future. Award-winning science journalist Peter Brannen takes us on a wild ride through the deep past. Meet the obsessive, off-kilter personalities using cutting-edge forensic tools to piece together what actually happened at the crime scenes of the Earth's biggest whodunnits. Discover the unfamiliar geography of past apocalypses hiding in plain sight all around us. But The Ends of the World isn't just a chronicle of the five most horrific catastrophes that plunged the only habitable planet in the known universe into the grave. It is also a chilling warning of the unwelcome reprise we are hurtling towards in the present.
