Fantasic book for dino lovers old and new!
I still love dinosaurs but haven't really kept up with recent developments in paleontology. This book was a great catch up on a lot of the developments in the field in the past few decades as well as clearing up some myths and misconceptions that even dinosaur enthusiasts such as myself my not have been aware of. It's concise and written with a good deal of wit and humor. I immediately identified with the authors younger self as he stood up in objection during a school play dressed as a stegosaurus and attempted to address the audience in an impromptu debate on the the accuracy of the script he was asked to act out. Great stuff!

Evidence, fossils, growth, clues, history, transformation,facts,
Evidence, fossils, growth, clues, history, transformation,facts, I had a great time reading this book and to my surprise I enjoyed it a lot and learned quite a bit. Found out dinosaurs change radically over their life cycle, I learned how one specie was thought to be two species than their life cycle caused the species to change and they became one. To my surprise I was not confused, go figure! Triceratops and Torosaurus confusion. Torosaurus is a fully mature form of a Triceratop. Brontosaurus is now Apatosaurus, I really need to catch up, don't you think? Thank you for an enjoyable read. Darlene Cruz on GoodreadsWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
