The Complete Dinosaur is a breathtaking and must-have book that will be devoured by everyone, from the youngest readers who have just discovered the wonders of dinosaurs to palaeontologists who have made the study of dinosaurs their life's work. * History in Review * Even ruthlessly pruned, a shelf of must-have dinosaur volumes will be overstuffed. . . . One of the best items on that overcrowded shelf would necessarily have been 1997's The Complete Dinosaur from Indiana University Press-until now, when Indiana has produced the title's second edition. . . . This new edition itself represents a considerable evolution: it's twice as big as the original, twice as heavy, twice as detailed, representing the enormous strides in research and extrapolation that have taken place just in the last fifteen years. * Open Letters Monthly * Copiously illustrated and accessible to all readers from the enthusiastic amateur to the most learned professional paleontologist, The Complete Dinosaur is a feast for serious dinosaur lovers everywhere. * The Guardian-Birdbooker Report * This 'encyclopedia,' written by more than 60 paleontologists recognized for their ongoing work with these amazing creatures, is a rich source of information. . . . Highly recommended. * Choice * ...[A] highly valuable resource for anyone with a serious interest in dinosaurs. Even as dinosaur family trees change, and discoveries alter what we thought we knew, the new volume is a fertile starting place for students and experts interested in paleontological problems they have not considered before. At the very least, The Complete Dinosaur demonstrates how exceptionally rich the study of dinosaurs has become. * National Geographic Laelaps * The second edition of The Complete Dinosaur is a special book, which will no doubt continue the legacy of the first edition in bringing cutting-edge dinosaur science to the public. * Priscum * The text, for the most part, is accessible and the book should be commended for reviewing aspects of dinosaur paleontology that are often restricted to more technical volumes. As such, this is an ideal stepping stone from general interest books on dinosaurs to the primary literature on the subject. * Quarterly Review of Biology * This substantial, and now revised, multi-author book is a good introduction to dinosaur (and early bird)science, without demanding much if any technical knowledge, in 45 chapters variously taxonomic andthematic, on subjects including aspects of dinobiology, methodology and theory, and even dinoart. * Archives of Natural History *Reseña del editor:
Praise for the first edition: A gift to serious dinosaur enthusiasts" -Science The amount of information in [these] pages is amazing.

Best of all, the book treats dinosaurs as intellectual fun." -New Scientist The book is useful both as a reference and as a browse-and-enjoy compendium." -Natural History What do we know about dinosaurs, and how do we know it? How did dinosaurs grow, move, eat, and reproduce? Were they warm-blooded or cold-blooded? How intelligent were they? How are the various groups of dinosaurs related to each other, and to other kinds of living and extinct vertebrates? What can the study of dinosaurs tell us about the process of evolution? And why did typical dinosaurs become extinct? All of these questions, and more, are addressed in the new, expanded, second edition of The Complete Dinosaur. Written by many of the world's leading experts on the "fearfully great" reptiles, the book's 45 chapters cover what we have learned about dinosaurs, from the earliest discoveries of dinosaurs to the most recent controversies. Where scientific contention exists, the editors have let the experts agree to disagree. Copiously illustrated and accessible to all readers from the enthusiastic amateur to the most learned professional paleontologist, The Complete Dinosaur is a feast for serious dinosaur lovers everywhere.
