    At least, not in the traditional sense.

    The whole book is a series of analogies between events that happen on a "human scale" and those that happen over a more "geological scale" of time.  I want to show that the kind of selective pressures that drive evolution are also at work, on different scales, everywhere from marketplace to mountain top.  

    So if someone goes away with just the tigers and sauropods comparison, I think I'll be happy enough.
