Content = GREAT!, Construction Quality = HORRIBLE!
As far as dinosaur books go, this one is great. Not only does it show plenty of dinosaurs (complete with detailed profile descriptions), but includes tons of other prehistoric creatures. The illustrations show the same fantastic, photorealism that we've come to expect from the people who made the Walking With series. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to enjoy this quality work due to the fact that in only a few weeks after purchasing, the book will proceed to gradually fall apart as the glue melts, dries out, and/or disintegrates. I have already had to return this book once (the binding apparently having fallen apart while i was reading it at the store) and thought that this was just an anomally. Much to my dismay, my second copy, which was structurally sound when I picked it up, has now started to fall apart in an identical manner.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In short, this is a perfect example of how a great product can be ruined by shoddy manufacturing. My advice: if you don't want to blow 10 bucks getting the book spiral-bound, try to get the hardcover version (I haven't seen the hardcover myself, but it probably uses different, more robust binding)
