Go with prehistoric animals

    Would you please recommend me some good books on the evolution of prehistoric animals ? Or some books on evolution which you think are interesting and must-have for me to have them in my small library ?

    Thank you,

    S. J. Gould is famous for his collections of essays on just those topics. I will note that some people think he tended to inject his left-wing politics with too heavy a hand when the topic of humans came up.

    The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins is an extremely good book. Very detailed and easy to read; explanatory with many diagrams and figures.
