This is a fascinating and well-written account of the history of the paleontological exploration and research carried on in the past century on dinosaur fossils. Readable, as many such are not, well-illustrated, and full of wonderful tales and anecdotes, it is a pleasure to read and own. I wish I had the dj for my copy.

I loved this book. It was a little slow to start but offers a fantastic overview of the major discoveries in the history of Paleontology. From the forst scientific thoughts on dinosaurs, to the notorious bone wars of Cope and MArsh, to the modern greats Ostrom, Bakker, Horner, etc. It's all covered here in a well written enjoyable fashion.

For the most part, the author seems to have pretty good information for the time of the book's printing, but for anyone who wants to read this book on purely scientific terms, be warned; there are several places where the book goes awry, for example: the author states that tracks of tyrranosaurus indicate that it was a solitary animal, occasionally hunting in pairs. Problem: no tracks of a t. rex have been discovered to date, a decade and a half after the writing. Aside from that and a few other points, though, the book is good reading.
