A great reference book; each species includes the length, weight, fossil remains, a few remarks on anatomy, geologic age, where the fossils have been found, habitat type, and usually some notes. Each page has one or two illustrations of the more important species - both a color drawing and a skeleton, all in the same pose. There are a few full-page illustrations, nothing remarkable and with an unusual art style, but they work. Pages 9 to 65 are mostly text and cover pretty much everything about dinosaurs, each subject is from a couple paragraphs to a couple pages long, and they don't dwell too much on fossil formation or the Bone Wars. I give it 5 stars because I can't really think of any way for this book to be better.

This is a great book for anyone who loves dinosaurs. Where there's enough information to create one, there is a silhouette with the known bones of a dinosaur as well as frequent full (imagined) color illustrations of the dinosaurs themselves. Sprinkled throughout are illustrations of the dinosaurs in their world. It really is amazing to see how many dinosaurs there are that aren't in the spotlight and to learn where they are found. There is just a ton of information in this book. The only thing it lacks is pronunciation. A lot of dinosaurs have names that can be difficult to attempt to sound out and a pronunciation guide for each name would have made this the perfect dinosaur book.
