This is the story of the discovery of fossil fish and of their evolution. Monster sharks, bizarre armoured fish, fish with arms, fish with a spiral whiplash of teeth - these are just some of the strange forms featured in this book. Fossils from around the world, photographed in colour, are brought to life through the author's dramatic colour reconstruction of what the fish may have looked like - amounting to over 300 colour illustrations in all.
