This is the dinosaur book I'd recommend to anyone wanting an introduction to the topic, or anyone vaguely interested in the topic, frankly: it's a great read but not short on scientific substance. It's an anthology of different adventure pieces, so you're really reading a story in more sense than one.

I met the author when he came to the University of Utah bookstore in 1994-95 and he signed my book. Very dynamic and adventurous individual.

I can't say I'm a big students of dinosaurs or anything but appreciated the energy and commitment and risk that went into this.

A great book on another of my fascinations - prehistoric archaeology. Another hangover from childhood, I have kept a firm hold of this book for my daughter to read when she is older, or indeed something we could read together.

A book for any age, full of interesting and up to date (at the time of publication) facts on the latest finds and the science behind the digging.

This book is unlike any other I've seen. It's not about dinosaurs themselves, but about the field of paleontology and the people who have dedicated their lives to it. It's full of amazing characters and stories and many beautiful pictures.

Never actually got around to buying this book, I found it in my school library I think. I liked it at the time but I was also in 7th grade. I'm not so sure how it would hold up nowadays.
