This is by no means supposed to be a comprehensive review of all dinosaurs. Instead, this books serves as a great introduction and review of the different subsets of dinosaurs, the differences and similarities between them, and the time periods they lived. The text and pictures are fantastic. This was the text used for my Dinosaurs class during undergraduate and I still have it. Great for a reference guide as well. As an aspiring paleontologist, I strongly recommend this book for any introduction to dinosaurs at a high school or college level.
This book has some very interesting topics within its pages. I rented this book for college and could have been more pleased with the speed of shipping and the ease of returning the book back.
This book is a fantastic update to the original volume(which I also have). The text is extremely informative and there are hundreds of photographs and diagrams. This second volume of Introduction to the study of Dinosaurs is highly recommended for anyone interested in these great animals.
