Product description

Review

`Well researched and beautifully written' -- BBC Focus `Magisterial ... part historical account, part scientific detective story. Switek's elegant prose and thoughtful scholarship will change the way you see life on our planet.' -- Neil Shubin, author of `Your Inner Fish' `A fine guide to the four-dimensional tapestry of life' -- Nature `Switek has produced in his first book prose and paleontological inspiration comparable to the work of the late Stephen Jay Gould ... Highly recommended.' -- Choice
