Factually all over the placeReviewed in the United States on May 12, 2019
How is it exactly lets say 235 million years? Would it make a difference if it was 234 or 236 million years? I bought it because I thought I was going to sign up for a course only to drop it later. Otherwise my mom loves this textbook (I don't even know why), but I didn't. So I rate it 2 stars instead of 1.

Excellent Introduction to the study of DinosaursReviewed in the United States on October 1, 2008
This book is a basic introduction to the study of dinosaurs. It briefly covers the history of paleontology in general and of dinosaur paleontology specifically. The reader will learn what makes a dinosaur a dinosaur, and why other reptiles aren't. It covers the major divisions of dinosaurs with brief descriptions of all of the large subgroups. If you're looking for a book that will get you beyond general audience level without requiring years of other studies to understand, this will be a good choice.

Jurassic SuccessReviewed in the United States on November 15, 2013
This author is fabulous! Oh, I wish I could shake his hand. This lovely gentleman wrote very clear text that is easy to understand. He gets to the point and offers extra information in green boxes. These boxes contain very interesting information and I was glad to read them. He provides plenty of anatomical depictions of dinosaurs so that readers can identify them clearly. The author didn't seem to show bias either. He justly pointed out whenever science failed to provide concrete answers or evidence to dinosaur behavior or physiology. I appreciate the fact that he explained disagreements between paleontologists and offered several angles to anything that was debated or otherwise uncertain.
