    Neat. I loved Evolution: What the Fossils Say and why it Matters. I thought that his introduction and conclusion were a lacking because his philosophy of science is a bit weak. And he could have spent just a tiny bit more time on geology and fossil dating. But his paleontology was reaaaaally good :D
