If you’re into dinosaurs then this book is likely just your cup of tea But this was too deep for our purposes and too science paper heavy details driven Complex language way over my 6th graders head keep in my she has little to no aptitude for dinosaurs Although older than the other book the illustrations were lacking not engaging largely black and white which on one hand illustrates how far the field has come in one short decade but also how uickly a text can age in a constantly emerging field We did find the timeline at the end useful enlightening and fascinating to succinctly illustrate the evolution of the field including recognizable endeavors like the founding reasoning and rise to prominence of world renowned museums and universities departments of paleontology The rivalries of the major players in the game are always intriguing In a field painted in modernity as the height of nerdiness think Ross in friends its a reminder of the honor and intrigue once given to deep academics almost bordering on heroism and adventure think Indiana Jones The best dinosaur book I have ever found A new edition is coming out and I think it will be even better than this one which I used for several years as a textbook in my Dinosaurs Myth and Reality class Somewhat uneven in the writing the topics covered are diverse and illustrate a great many facets of dinosaur paleontology Highly recommended
