This pocket-sized book is handy to carry, provides a clear overview with hundreds of colorful illustrations by Prof. Raymond Perlman (Univ. of Ill.) of plant & animal fossils and contains useful notations of species found at various timelines. The lead author Rhodes, President of Cornell University, had ready access to some of the finest specimens and documents available.
As an introduction and pocket guide this primer is to be recommended, and useful for full spectrum of age groups to all wanting ready access to reliable basic information on paleontology. Unfortunately, the list of nine textbooks and references tabulated on page 25 is outdated (1936 to 1962) and no mention, even in passing, is made of DNA. Nonetheless, as a pocket primer it is not excelled and the price is right.
