    "After the Cambrian explosion, recognizable fossils appear everywhere, as if some deity had conjured life itself into being." What?! Decent pictures at least.

    Photography rates a five, the text is questionable and in a couple of places biased so it receives a three. Overall the pictures pull it up to a four.

    Stunningly beautiful. I have to admit bias because it was a present from the author, but I love it. It's a coffee table book of sorts, because its large format has you luxuriating in the pictures and colours, but at the same time it has a serious, less populist purpose in celebrating the wonders of the sea and its adaptations to change while warning that we must change our destructive practices if this environment is to continue its rich diversity.
