Yeah, taxonomy (systematics) is a quickly changing field, and for that reason 
this book may not be the greatest for professional paleontologists and the 
like. But, for somebody like myself who is trying to learn more about 
classification, in hopes that I may pursue a career in science, it is one of 
the best books out there.  It's a good, albeit expensive ($45 or so), volume.  

I'll be reviewing it on my website in a few weeks or so.
