The subtitle of David Spalding's work is, "Eccentric Amateurs and Obsessed Professionals". But at 300 pages, there are few attempts to flesh-out either the dozens of paleontologists or the hundreds of species that comprise the paleontologists' "quarry". There are many chapters about the Europe North Amerca, but only room for one on Africa and one to treat all of India, South America, Australia, Antarctica and New Zealand. In spite of the dizzying number of paleontolgists and genus/species names, it was a nice overview, and encouraged me to jump online to seek more information about a particular species, museum or expedition.

An interesting and readable book on the history of Dinosaur fossil collecting and the people involved.
