Details: Product Description This updated edition of the highly successful volume, created in conjunction with London’s Natural History Museum, has all the strengths of the original…and more. Completely redesigned and revised, it now features two fascinating new sections that reflect the contemporary state of the field: “How to Recognize Fossils” and “Molecular Paleontology.” Readers will find this a straightforward, fascinating, and highly attractive introduction to fossils, their study, and their use in reconstructing the history of the earth.   Review Praise for Richard Fortey’s Dry Storeroom No. 1: The Secret Life of the Natural History Museum:   “[A] loving survey of his life at the museum.”   —Financial Times   “…always authoritative… there is plenty of solid science to enjoy, elucidated with brilliant flair.”                                                                                                                     —Sunday Times   “Engaging…Fortey’s writing is enough to make the behind-the-scenes work of the museum totally fascinating…. (his) delightful book, like the museum it describes, is both rambling and elegant.”                                                                                                                      —Sunday Telegraph   “…authoritative and attractive.”—Nature
