    "Excellent book"

    A good mix of evolutionary theory, history and fossil detective work. Very enjoyable. Worth listening to more than once.

    "Good overview"

    This is a good overview of the impact of paleontology on the development of our understanding of evolution. Slightly disjointed though. Performance was OK, with a couple of odd pronunciations.
