5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, Perfectly Judged, 24 April 2001
Maybe all I need to say about this is that I love it, and so does my son who has just turned three. It's a miracle of construction that it works so well on so many levels, and can appeal to 3-year-olds and 34-years-olds equally strongly. Laugh out loud over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly absorbing, 31 July 2000
I just love dinosaurs - can't get enough of them - so with that proviso, this is one of the most compelling things I've ever read. It's a very clear exposition of physical principles as they are applied to what little we know of dinosaurs, based on their bones and comparisons with present-day animals. What comes out is a set of impressively justified conclusions about their likely dimensions, behaviour etc. Along the way, I picked up more than I ever expected to learn about properties of materials, metabolism and fitness, fluid dynamics, auronautics and a whole slew of other sciences. Very hard to put down.
