From Library Journal:

Debate has raged for almost a decade on the theory that the impact of an extraterrestrial object caused extinction of the dinosaurs. In this very personal account Hsu, a geologist whose books include The Mediterranean Was a Desert, reviews the diverse threads that led him to support the bolide theory. Sedimentation rates, carbon and oxygen isotopes, iridium anomalies, magnetic reversals, marine-terrestrial correlations, and planktonic turnover are all deciphered, and a comet is found to be responsible. Hsu goes on to criticize the theory of Natural Selection, linking it to political-sociological philosophies and events at the turn of the century, and advocating instead a theory of chance and catastrophe drawn from the philosophy of China. His arguments on this topic are unconvincing. Nevertheless, informed readers and specialists alike will find much of interest in this book. Walter P. Coombs, Jr., Biology Dept., Western New England Coll., Springfield, Mass.
