Most of it you’ll read for fun and entertainment.
It does include some clarification of practical philosophy of science, and this is explained. You’ll understand it fine but it may take years to savour fully. But just the sciencepolice-14 rules are worth a year’s science education – particularly to researchers.
The appendices contain a bit of information processing, for those who want to check out the technicalities.
Palaeontology hasn’t always made a lot of sense until now; this book was designed to fix that and move the field on. You owe it to yourself and your students to find out the new ideas early – don’t get left behind!
