Good general introduction to fossils and history of life on earth. Musings of a highly regarded paleontolologist, targeted at the introductory reader. Some interesting comments on fossil collecting, but the chapter there is sort of superficial. In addition, given the author's origin in the British Isles, many comments regarding localities for fossil collecting focus on Britain. Well written, nice pictures, highlights important issues in paleontology. For someone with more advanced knowledge, this book may be too basic.
