From the PublisherOf the First Edition: "...well-written, highly visual, engaging, and informative book ... Highly recommended."
Of the First Edition: "If you wish to know about the jaw mechanics in Euornithopoda, or if the giant femur of an adult Maiasaura makes you happy, this book will become the best gift for you! … The indices of subjects and genera are very detailed and useful. It is great that the Latin name is translated for each taxon … an outstanding synthesis of the modern knowledge on dinosaurs. And it will remain so for at least 1-2 decades. The reviewer has no idea other than to recommend this book strongly for everyone deeply interested in the world of dinosaurs and the evolutionary theory."

Of the First Edition: "… it is undoubtedly the case that Fastovsky and Weishampel have been at the forefront of this genre. … concise as well as being accessible and highly informative on the topic of dinosaurs and the science that can be applied to understanding them. As a well-structured, thoughtful and helpful undergraduate teaching guide it is absolutely excellent."
David Norman, The Geographical Journal
Of the First Edition: "Overall I find Dinosaurs: A Concise Natural History to be a welcome improvement over what in my opinion was already the best dinosaur textbook on the market."
William Parker, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology
"… the most comprehensive and useful text on dinosaurs on the market. It's both authoritative and whimsical, providing the student with a great background on dinosaurs and on the sciences needed to understand them. It's fun to read and [has] great illustrations too."
