Reviews

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
