Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dinosaur remains were first identified some 170 years ago, but there is still much to find out about these extraordinary prehistoric creatures. the Ultimate Dinosaur Book will appeal to all ages: its evocative text and more than 500 magnificent color illustrations reveal dinosaurs and their world as never before. Author David Lambert provides fascinating insight into how dinosaurs lived and died, including an explanation of various theories of extinction. The introductory section is a dramatically illustrated, concise exploration of every aspect of dinosaur anatomy and behavior, from body structure to breeding, from fighting to feeding. At the core of The Ultimate Dinosaur Book are 55 superbly detailed, full-color dinosaur profiles. Every major group is represented, from four-story-high brachiosaurids to chicken-sized compsognathids. Lifelike models, illustrations, and specially commissioned photographs of fossilized remains are annotated to emphasize important features. The final section is a brief guide to every known dinosaur type, including the pronunciation and meaning of dinosaur names, what different dinosaurs looked like, when and where they lived, and how they are classified. Lavishly illustrated, comprehensive and featuring the world's best dinosaur specimens, The Ultimate Dinosaur Book is the one-volume reference every dinosaur lover will have to have.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on the extensive dinosaur resources of the Natural History Museum in London, this book stands out as special with its splendid visuals and intelligent organization and text. But ultimate, shmultimate; even John Ostrom's brief foreword contradicts such a notion by acknowledging that "where dinosaurs are concerned, the quest goes on." The introductory section explores dinosaur behavior and anatomy, but the core of this excellent (if not ultimate) book comprises 55 superbly detailed dinosaur profiles. An A to Z listing of all known dinosaurs follows (with pronunciation--yes!).
