Earth: Evolution of a Habitable World
Jonathan I. Lunine 1999 Cambridge University Press
This textbook deals with not just the evolution of the Earth, but of the Solar System. It reviews basic physics, geochronology, and plate tectonics before starting on the formation of the Solar System. It spends six chapters on the Precambrian, two on the Phanerozoic, and then focuses on human activity. It also has a section on the climate histories of Mars and Venus.
