I thought I’d let you all know that Jerry Bergman’s latest book, Fossil Forensics: Separating Fact from Fantasy in Paleontology has been holding steady as Amazon’s #1 Hot New Release for several weeks now.
This book focuses on the fossil record from a physiological point of view. Dr. Bergman has taught physiology quite a bit over the years, and this perspective shows through. Bergman goes into quite a bit of depth into the various evolutionary hypotheses connecting the fossils, and he both gives them credit where it is due, and calls them out when they are guilty of pure speculation.
The book has done quite well in its release, and is currently:
- The #1 Hot New Release in Fossils
- The #1 Hot New Release in Paleontology
- The #1 Hot New Release in Biology of Fossils (a different category than the previous one)
As a disclaimer, I should point out that this is published by my own publishing company. But the reason I published it is because I think it is a really good approach to the fossil record, and I have a lot of respect for Jerry Bergman’s body of work, and have made a lot of use of it in the past. You can buy Fossil Forensics here.
