Somewhat disappointed, but very informative nonetheless
First let me say that I have always appreciated Dr. Horner's contributions to Vertebrate Paleontology. Not only is his a world authority on Dinosaurs, his passion alone for past life make him an invaluable character within the Paleontological world. However I must say this book fell a little short of my expectations of Dr. Horner. Of course, biologically we are far far from ever completing the title of this book so readers do not take the title as urgent. WIth that said, I guess Dr. Horner has gotten some slack, but in the scope of things the title I believe should have been more appropriately called "Why I would like to Build a Dinosaur (and how I might be able to do it with the science of Reverse Evolution)". Not this book is a diary entry, it still has a lot of informative science and gives great insight to work of the future, I just feel this book could have waited, and instead been rewritten. But who knows, maybe its so before its time that in the future we could have a reestablished respect for it?
