“Remarkably all-encompassing and superbly illustrated . . . a fascinating tome.”
Huffington Post

A visual trove of more than 300 dinosaurs, with key anatomy, geology, history, and theory at a glance


We live in a golden age of paleontological discovery—the perfect time to dig in to the spectacular world of dinosaurs. From Aardonyx, a lumbering beast that formed a link between two- and four-legged dinosaurs, to Zuniceratops, who boasted a deadly pair of horns, Dinosaurs—The Grand Tour details everything worth knowing about more than 300 dinosaurs. The important discoveries and gory details touch on topics from geology, anatomy, and evolution to astronomy and even Native American and Chinese myth. Fascinating facts abound:
  • Giganotosaurus was longer, two tons heavier, and had bigger jaws than T. Rex.
  • The poison-spitting Dilophosaurus from Jurassic Park wasn’t actually venomous at all.??
  • Because of its bizarre single-clawed hands, scientists now believe Mononykus was a prehistoric predecessor of the anteater!
Illustrations on virtually every page, true to the latest findings, bring these prehistoric creatures to life in all their razor-sharp, long-necked, spiny, scaly glory.

The more you know, the better you are prepared...when driving around in the dark, during a storm, lost, and face to face to various dinosaurs.

Very informative on some of the dinosaurs that have been found. Doesn't contain many illustrations mostly silhouettes. But, a fantastic read regardless.

Good info but disappointed it only had outlines, not that many illustrations and fewer full color pictures.
