Dr Darren Naish makes science interesting - really, he does! As a fellow reviewer mentions, he runs one of the most fascinating blogs on the Internet, holding forth on a range of zoological and paleontological subjects and sharing his own original ideas and insights. This book offers up a selection of some of Naish's most popular posts from the early days of his blog, Tetrapod Zoology. I recently read this book cover to cover while camping in the jungle (the irony didn't escape me - reading a book of blog posts in a place with no computer, let alone Internet connection!). Not only did the series of enlightening essays keep me enraptured while tropical storms raged, making hiking impossible, I picked up some fantastic further reading recommendations - Naish has excellent taste in books! I would definitely recommend Tetrapod Zoology Booke One - and can't wait for Books Two, Three, Four and Five or however many other companion volumes are issued. Well worth the money.
