"Nature is not as simple as its observers"
Irreverent, whimsical, but always serious, the intrigues contained within this masterful volume are as witty and entertaining as they are informative.  Noted paleontologist Leonard Krishtalka explores the wonders of natural science with a refreshing blend of sparkling humour and respectful awe -- debunking its myths while celebrating its triumphs.
Krishtalka unravels:
The Piltdown Man -- the incredible hoax that fooled scientists for half a century ...
The disappearance of the dinosaur -- the grandest whodunit in history ...
The astonishing DNA trail back to the original Eve ...
With topics ranging from the sex lives of dinosaurs to the possibility of life on other planets, this remarkable work is enthralling, accessible, and consistently delightful.
