«Nothing short of a thriller, revealing the luck, evolutionary twists and near-apocalyptical catastrophes that have led to the mammals of today, us included . . . Fascinating revelations come thick and fast»

Guardian

«Deeply researched and entertaining . . . Brusatte’s real achievement is to show us that, for all its sheer weight of numbers and impact, Homo sapiens is just ‘a single point, among millions of species over more than 200 million years.»

Mark Cocker, , The Spectator

«Terrific . . . a saga on the grandest scale . . . beautifully told . . . Brusatte brings well-known extinct species, the sabre-toothed tigers and the woolly mammoths, thrillingly back to life»

The Times,

«Stands out for its brilliant balance of scientific detail and lively, efficient storytelling»

New Scientist

«Gorgeous book . . . fantastic writing, brilliant science.»

Alice Roberts, author of <i>Ancestors</i>

«The epic story of how our mammalian cousins evolved to fly, walk, swim, and walk on two legs . . . [Brusatte's] deep knowledge infuse[s] this lively journey of millions of years of evolution with infectious enthusiasm

<span>Neil Shubin, bestselling author of <i>Your Inner Fish</i> and University of Chicago paleontolo

«A fascinating account of how mammals survived the great extinction that destroyed the dinosaurs and evolved to their current position of dominance. A worthy sequel to [Steve Brusatte's] The Rise and Fall of Dinosaurs

<span>Venki Ramakrishnan, 2009 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry and Cambridge University biologist</s

«Riveting . . . A real page-turner that proves science fact is more amazing than science fiction.»
