Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
a fascinating book which is well written and offers a great insight into both the ways dinosaurs, especially predatory dinosaurs, behaved and into the methods used to reach these conclusions.

The book reads like an expanded (padded...) National Geographic article. The writing is too sensationalist and slapdash for me, and there is no attempt to delve deeply into the subject (happy days of Stephen Gould forensically dissecting a fossil, making the reader -- this reader at least -- feel as though he was one of the scientists seeing this creature for the first time in half a billion years...even if it was basically just a woodlouse...). I'd have loved this when I was 8 years old.

If someone should still have doubts about the fact that some predatory dinosaurs hunted in gangs,than he must read "DinoGangs".In this book Dr Ph J Currie gives us chapter by chapter undisputed facts that he found by searching all over the world.A very convincing work based on scientific data.
