Written in Stone: Evolution, the Fossil Record, and Our Place in Nature - Brian Switek
Well, that was a pleasant read, even if little of it was new to me. The chatty style was okay, though going through a lot of topics quite quickly. I particularly liked the last three chapters: the one on horses using that as a way to talk about ideas of pattern and process in evolution; an overview of changing thoughts about human origins; and a nicely-written conclusion about "our place in nature".
