Reviews

"An exceptionally valuable, scholarly, yet widely accessible broad outline of the dazzling evolutionary history of the mammalian faunas and selected lineages during the Age of Mammals, the Cenozoic...an important contribution for those paleontologists and zoologists who are not mammal specialists, yet have wide-ranging interests in macroevolution. Very highly recommended." -- Choice "A rich paleontological panorama...What struck me most forceably about the work is the magnitude of chance experienced by the region over this period." -- Times Literary Supplement "An excellent balance of coverage between different lineages--and impressive achievement in and of itself... This is a very successful study, which tackles a difficult task with admirable deftness." -- Journal of Mammology "Full of interesting matter...a vital aid in assisting the nonexpert reader to see the big picture." -- Tim Flannery, Science "A fine book for all who have an interest in mammals, whether extant species or fossil species. Nicely done." -- Northeastern Naturalist "It is always a pleasure to review a book that is accurate, easy to read and beautifully illustrated." -- Peter Andrews, Journal of Mammalian Evolution
