Just like the author, dinosaurs captured my imagination long time ago. I find it fascinating that there is so much that is not known and yet to discover about these wonderful creatures. I found the book informative and enjoyed the author’s enthusiasm.

An easy way to catch up on the latest findings in dinosaur science, although it gets a bit repetitive.

Every once in a while I like to read light nonfiction that deals with a subject that I don't know a lot about, so when I heard about this book, I thought it would be perfect as I don't really know a lot of actual dinosaur facts. However, while it strives to be light and entertaining, it really was just very boring. I didn't rate this one just because I didn't finish it. I did learn a lot about the origins of the Brontosaurus vs Apatosaurus, so that's something. If you already have a love of dinosaurs, this might be for you.
