There are 8 Chapters in the book...and the first 6 are technical and beyond all but the most studious of secondary students. They deal with the dazzling array of paleoclimate techniques, both in Greenland and elsewhere, and are sometimes very technical.

However, the final two Chapters are excellent reading for secondary students and up...smoothly flowing and condense the thesis of the book...which takes all that we know about climate change in the past, and tries to project that knowledge into our future...in a conservative and balanced way.

The photos are stunning! Happy reading!
