Relatively up to date, disappointed that it suggests older books for information on things not comprehensively covered. Drawing and photos could be better.

Michael Benton, a professor at the University of Bristol, is one of the worlds most eminant Vertebrate Paleontologists. His strength lies in his ability to powerfully convey complex geology, biology and palaeoevolution to his audience : be they children, interested amateurs or his university students. Vertebrate Palaeontology is no different.
As vertebrates ourselves, we all have an interest in this book - Bentons very structured writing and editorial style allows the reader to follow his own family tree back from the present to the Pre-Cambrian.
Vertebrate Paleontology is a vast subject to cover - Michaels book simply outlines the key time markers, the key subjects and the key organisms along the route from Pikaia of the Burgess Shales to modern Hominids. The references, as always, are ubiquitous for those dedicated readers.
An excellent book.
