Let's Read _Dinosaurs: How They Lived and Evolved_

What a fantastic book Naish and Barrett's Dinosaurs: How They Lived and Evolved is!  It is a fine introduction to these fantastic animals that I love so much.  If I could afford it, I'd buy copies for every family I know.  Most of the information in the book will be new and mind-blowing for them.

Most of the information wasn't new to me, so the selling point for me was those incredible illustrations.  The book is packed with art.  I can't express how happy I am to see the work of artists I first encountered online in a big beautiful glossy book.

Best of all, we have here a book about dinosaurs where birds are included like it ain't no thing and therefore, this is a book about dinosaurs that does not end at the K/T extinction.  Goodness, this is the dinosaur book I've wished for since childhood.

Oof, that cover though... >_<
