This is the first major book to present a comprehensive overview of the current state of extinction studies. At the end of the journey, Raup has put forward the best science of the day to answer the question posed by the title: Bad genes or bad luck?
“An eminently entertaining and informative read.” — Malcolm W. Browne, New York Times Book Review
“A delightful little book about life on this planet and about extinctions, in particular. It is as much about the philosophy and methodology of science as about the downside of evolution.” — Clark R. Chapman, Planetary Science Institute
