From the reviews:

“This book is an intensely detailed examination of what scientists know about ejecta layers in the sedimentary record, from Earth’s earliest rocks through the modern era. … A historical section at the end is especially useful to geologists sorting out how impacts have influenced physical and biological evolution. … This book is a must have for anyone interested in impact history and theory. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (M. A. Wilson, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), July, 2013)
