I loved this. Sometimes these books that look at one topic from the POV of several different disciplines (geology, history, mythology, etc) are a pain to follow, but this was either well done or the perfect topic for me. I could have been so engrossed in the content I overlooked some rough transitions. This gave me just enough from each perspective to feel informed but curious to find out more. I did not know the lunar cycle impacted our evolution so early on. Amazing.

Our Moon is a deep dive into the moon. Starting from how the moon was formed, the science of the effects of the moon on the Earth and how life and the moon interact and influence one another, Our Moon delves into the relationship between life and the moon. I enjoyed reading about the moon's origins and how scientists have determined that the moon was formed from the collision of two other planetary bodies and the unique rocks and minerals found there that tell of its history. Most interesting to me was the way humans have regarded the moon through history to the present. The moon helped to shape life on Earth and was our timekeeper, calendar and constant in the sky. I was intrigued by the long worship of the moon goddess, Sin and the women on Earth who worshipped her and her phases. I also enjoyed the archaeological data that supports multiple ancient cultures showing knowledge of the moon's cycles and utilizing that information for timekeeping and acting as a calendar. Most of all, Our Moon examined the moon's influence upon human culture and advancement.

Made me really enthusiastic about the moon. A creative way to provide a perspective on the moon. Now I have a little better understanding of why suddenly rockets are being sent to South Pole of moon. On one level it is exciting to think people will probably be back in less than two years. I still remember the first landing and almost being bored by the last landings. I remember the Apollo fire. The moon is still worthy of study.
