About this book

This great book is at once a readable introduction to paleobiology, the fossil record and evolutionary theory (with contributions from Michael Benton, Christine Janis, Peter Andrews, Christopher Stringer and others) and a unique illustrated survey (with hundreds of paintings, drawings, charts and graphs) of the history of life on earth. The authors take us (in chronological sequence) from the emergence of bacteria 4 billion years ago to the evolution of homo sapiens in recent geological time. Highly recommended – there are no other books quite like this one.
