In Search of Deep Time: Beyond the Fossil Record to a New History of Life

In Search of Deep Time: Beyond the Fossil Record to a New History of Life - Henry Gee I found it interesting and readable, but he seemed to repeat himself a lot. Each new chapter, he would begin a new topic, then repeat his central point: you can't posit relationships between species in deep time because there is no way to prove it. I kept thinking, okay, I get it. I felt rather like a student in a lecture. Which may be appropriate since I'm a non-scientist, but it wasn't that difficult a concept.
