Much more scientific than I expected. Definitely written for scientists; thick paragraphs of evolutionary biology terms and species names made it feel like a slog at times.

All said, the history and narrative of inferences made through evolutionary biology was great.

Just as good as Brusatte's first book. I'm glad he took an interest in mammals so I could enjoy more of his writing without having to hear about dinosaurs again. Highly recommended.
