This one is wonderful: The Story of Earth: The First 4.5 Billion Years, from Stardust to Living Planet by Robert M. Hazen:

It appears to be very up to date scientifically (published last year) and written very well. I'd give it 5 of 5 stars!

Hazen is also that author of a few of the "Great Courses" (http://www.thegreatcourses.com/tgc/p...il.aspx?pid=18 ) and numerous other books. I'm looking forward to checking out/reading more of his work.
I got really excited when i read your recomendation of The Story of Earth but its not available for the Kindle on Amazon UK.
