My first impression is that this is a wonderful book. Tom has taken the most completest ideal to a dinosaur book that I have ever seen. This thing really is first rate.
The first few chapters are all about basics: how we know what we know. They also act as a primer for anyone interested in rebuking a Creationist. "Hey guys, here's a LESSON PLAN for you school board the next time that they plan to act like idiots."
