About this book

A guide to the complex and often puzzling questions raised by the existence of fossils, offering a review of the current knowledge of and thinking on the fossil record, and how it should be interpreted.

Fossils goes a long way toward bridging the gap between information and aesthetic satisfaction... More than a picture book: it is a readable and informative text on the history of life, its geology, biology, and anthropology. Living fossils, stratigraphy, extinction, and evolution are all here.
