Publisher's Summary

Jeffrey W. Martz of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science is widely renowned for his expertise in the field of paleontology, a science that lies at the crossroads of biology and geology. Paleontologists seek to unearth and re-create life hundreds of millions of years old, and the work of paleontologists offers us detailed glimpses of the prehistoric world. These fascinating lectures delve into the techniques and processes of paleontologists while providing a better understanding of this often misunderstood science.

    "great introductory level lectures."

    This was a great listen. I really appreciated the assumption that the reader was science-literate.

    "An excellent presentation of a fascinating subject!"

    Dr. is a skillful, knowledgable lecturer who was able to convey his knowledge in a way that is understandable to a non-paleontologist.

    "Too short"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    High-schoolers


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    It was far too short a lecture series! I was surprised to find that so much information was crammed into so few lectures. It felt more like someone was reading out a wikipedia page than delivering an actual scholarly lecture.
