It will not be timeless in itself but the timeline this book provides is without a doubt very handy when reading about past times.
When I'm reading about ancient life forms that once occupied the earth I allways wondered where for example Africa lay 100 million years ago. This book provides an excellent view on how the world may have looked like during its existance. And it turns this also around by describing each period, and not only the dino-era, with the animals that lived then. The concept of describing the earth this way, accompanied with lots of illustrations gives a good idea of how nature might have looked and is very entertaining.
