Science writer Carl Zimmer offers his personal take on his blog: http://www.corante.com/loom/archives/2006/01/05/catblogging_from_deep_time.php#comments

The book: "Big Cats and their Fossil Relatives" is available in Kinokuniya and is a fascinating read into the prehistoric world of cats before they tamed humans. For general cat lovers, "The Tribe of Tiger" by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas is a great read that gives a natural historian views on why cats are the way they are.
