This was not a page turner. It's more of a reference book for the taxonomy of the most common fossils out in the world than it is a reader. I found the information about each fossil type very scientific, however the information about finding fossils, cleaning fossils, and storing fossils is seriously lacking.

A good pocket guide to a lot of fossils and the creatures they belong to. The assortment of lifeforms found within the book is impressive, although it is missing some of the more obscure fauna from prehistory, which is a bit of a disappointment at times.

Recommends it for: Fossil fanatics everywhere
(From a mildly biased fossil geek's perspective), after reading straight through, cover to cover, I classed it a thriller, but would hate to ruin the plot for anyone else, grin.

Great photos. Very clearly written and illustrated.

While this book doesn't have a lot of information for the advanced collector, it is a great beginner guide. The photos are clear and the information is easy to understand.
