About this book

Valuable popular account by a respected scientific journalist to a subject which has been invigorated by technical advances in molecular and developmental biology. Before the Backbone is a valuable resource for students (both advanced undergraduates and graduates), as well as lecturers and researchers.

"Henry Gee has admirably mastered a formidable library of scattered reference to bring this timely book together [...] Palaeontologists, zoologists and geneticists should read this book and learn from it."
Endeavour

"The book is a true mine of information."
Ethology Ecology & Evolution

"Before the Backbone is certainly a valuable addition to my bookshelf, and I commend it to all of those interested in vertebrates in particular or in metazoan phylogeny as a whole."
Geological Magazine
