All Yesterdays is a book about the way we see dinosaurs and other
prehistoric animals. Lavishly illustrated with over sixty original
artworks, All Yesterdays aims to challenge our notions of how prehistoric
animals looked and behaved. As an critical exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions about what is probable, what is
possible, and what is commonly ignored.

Written by palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically imaginative in its approach to fossils of the past - and those
of the future.

What I saw of it was all right, but it doesn't display properly on my Nook HD, so I wasn't able to see most of the pictures.

Wish I wouldn't have wasted the money on the ebook version. You can only see half of each illustration. Very dissapointing.

This in an alternative interpretation of how dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals may have looked based on reconstructions from fossil records. Although footnotes are used throughout the book, there is no table of contents, index, or bibliography. It is an interesting topic and could generate discussion among dinosaur lovers. This book is appropriate for adults interested in paleontology.

Sadly, there was not much new in this book in terms of text content compared with the online commentary articles you can find on the illustrations. It's not really necessary to buy this as an ebook if you've already read one of those, so I'd recommend you get the print version if anything. The illustrations in it were very interesting, though, and for that it's a great book. I question a few of the details of some of the All Todays illustrations (would future palaeontologists really be stupid enough to think some of the Holocene animals were that thin?) but really liked the concept and the creativity that went into some of them.

It provides some alternative theories of how extinct animals looked, which I found interesting. And, the section dealing with how future anthropologists might reconstruct animals living today only using their bones was fascinating. But I would have appreciated having a deeper discussion about what guidelines scientists use when constructing their models. Other than those comments, the book was fun to read.
