The Rise and Reign of the Mammals

by Steve Brusatte

After a bestselling book about dinosaurs, Steve Brusatte decided to take on a less popular topic — first mammals and their evolution. Again, he combines vivid descriptions of the bygone world with a story of scientific discoveries and the work of many paleontologists, himself included. If you liked ‘The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs’, you will definitely like this one as well, even if ancient mammals may seem less charismatic.

Many beautiful illustrations and photos were a big plus.

Thanks to the publisher, Mariner Books, and NetGalley for an advanced copy of this book.
