"Placental Mammals achieves a balance between molecular work, on the one hand, and anatomical and paleontological work, on the other. Influential figures of twentieth-century studies of placental mammalian phylogenetics are fulsomely acknowledged, particularly W. K. Gregory and G. G. Simpson... A complete treatment of uniformly high quality has emerged... A tribute to the vision and dynamism of the editors, and a vindication of their choice of contributors... This timely volume somehow represents that biological cliché: a new synthesis."

"The volume should be welcome bedside reading for all mammal systematicists and anyone interested in the evolution of mammals."

"An excellent summary of current thinking about the higher levels of mammalian evolution."

"Not only an up-to-date textbook, but a detailed source of reference for all readers interested in mammals and their evolution."

"I give this book a glowing review and a high recommendation."

"I recommend the book to all those interested in the evolutionary history of placentals."

"An excellent reference on the current state of knowledge and issues surrounding the origin, diversification, and phylogenetic position of placental mammalian clades."
