    3.

    4. NOTE: This review also appears at scienceforthefuture.Those of us who love dinosaurs know that there is something poetic about these animals – the spectacular size of some, their amazing variety, the mysteries of their long life on this planet . We still feel a thrill when we envision the fantastic beasts and we sometimes find ourselves drifting into a reverie in which we imagine the world under their 140 million-year domination. We can almost see, in our mind’s eye, the graceful long-necked [...]

    5. Don't be put off by the cover!I was relieved when listening to Darren Naish's podcast sometime after reading this book that I wasn't the only person to find it anachronistic and ridiculous. Inside, many of the illustrations are far more naturalistic and, indeed, in keeping with what we currently know about dinosaurs' behaviour and appearance. Including feathers.Having a professional interest in archeoornithology, in addition to the common small-boy-at-heart interest in dinosaurs, I was relieved [...]

    6. Much has been learned about the dinosaurs, starting with the "Dinosaur Renaissance" lead by John Ostrum and Robert Bakker, and through the application of new study techniques since the 1990's. This book provides an excellent review of the current knowledge of these fascinating animals. The known genera has expanded from a few in the late 1800's to around 700 species in 300 genera today, with the expectation of an ultimate number of over 1500 genera.An initial chapter reviews the geological time [...]

    7. This is the best dinosaur book I've ever read. I like the way the material is organized and explained, and I like the discussion of multiple points of view. I especially like how the authors emphasize that birds are dinosaurs and provide an entire chapter on the origin of birds. It includes great photographs of fossils and fabulous art work.

    8. Definitely belong on your dinosaur-geek gift list (or for yourself!). Up-to-date dino-science plus spectacular illos. About the only flaw so far is that illustration credits are scanty and obscure. Which is actually annoying (even more so to the artists!), since much of the appeal of the book is the paleoart. Perhaps they will make amends on the website?blogsientificamerican/OK, "How awesome is this book exactly?" (the authors ask). Pretty friggin awesome, I'd say."Even if you don’t want to re [...]

    9. A grand tour of the Jurassic park and the prehistoric creatures Dinosaurs are one of the most interesting group of creatures that appeared in Triassic period around 230 million years ago. They dominated the planet during the Jurassic (201 to 145 million years ago) and Cretaceous periods (145 to 66 million years ago). These creatures occupied every landmass during this vast period and evolved into thousands of species. During the last decade at least one new species has been identified and named [...]
