Book—Written in Stone

An up and coming science writer, Brian Switek has written his first book, Written in Stone: Evolution, the Fossil Record, and Our Place in Nature. I haven’t read read his book but here is a lengthty excerpt—read about feathered dinosaurs and the origin of birds. His blog is here.

Here’s an excerpt of Carl Zimmer’s (a favourite science writer) The Tangled Bank.
