Out of Thin Air: Dinosaurs, Birds, and Earth's Ancient Atmosphereby Peter Ward
Synopses & Reviews
By tracing the evolutionary path back through time and carefully connecting the dots from birds to dinosaurs, Ward describes the unique form of breathing shared by these two distant relatives and demonstrates how this simple but remarkable characteristic provides the elusive explanation to a question that has thus far stumped scientists. Nothing short of revolutionary in its bold presentation of an astonishing theory, "Out of Thin Air" is a story of science at the edge of discovery. Ward is an outstanding guide to the process of scientific detection. Audacious and innovative in his thinking, meticulous and thoroughly detailed in his research, only a scientist of his caliber is capable of telling this surprising story.
A renowned scientist provides a startling explanation that is rewriting the history of the Age of Dinosaurs.
