In The Last Days of the Dinosaurs, Black walks readers through what happened in the million years after an asteroid seven miles wide slammed into the Earth causing a mass extinction. More than half of known species vanished, but this worst single day in the history of life on Earth was as critical for us as it was for the dinosaurs. It allowed for evolutionary opportunities that were closed for the previous 100 million years, setting the stage for the world as we know it.
