5.0 out of 5 stars dino,dead or alive?
DO buy this book (published by Xulon Press) if you are seeking a spirited sprint through the wonderful world of cryptozoological dinosaur sightings. It is a short summary(116 pages) written by a gifted teenager(written when 14 in 2006)indicating evidence that dinosaurs still exist and drawing out the implications should this be so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what i thought, 22 Sep 2012

This review is from: Dinosaurs: Dead or Alive? - Cryptozoology (Paperback)
This book will struggle to keep you awake! , most of the anecdotes are vague and simply boring due to them all containing similar information.I thought the book would be interesting however it quickly turned into a argument against evolution and basically all of modern science in favor of the story of Noah's ark and biblical tales ! ,and the most angering part of it was the basic lack of reasoning ,simply reading one book on evolution would show the inaccuracy's that were made in every anti-evolution remark made by this home schooled christian. The final page rendered the whole book to a complete shamble and was really unnecessary, i would not recommend the book to anyone ! IT IS NOT SURPRISING THAT THIS BOOK IS SO THIN, IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY !

5.0 out of 5 stars dino,dead or alive?, 20 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dinosaurs: Dead or Alive? - Cryptozoology (Paperback)
DO buy this book (published by Xulon Press) if you are seeking a spirited sprint through the wonderful world of cryptozoological dinosaur sightings. It is a short summary(116 pages) written by a gifted teenager(written when 14 in 2006)indicating evidence that dinosaurs still exist and drawing out the implications should this be so. There are people who say that informed christian believers think that the Great Flood wiped out all the dinosaurs. A brief scan of the bibliography of Philip O'Donnell's book(pages 112-114)would point to resources which falsify such claims. The book is brightly written from a North American geographical perspective so it describes parts of the New World and some parts of the Old World as remote,when they are not readily accessible(i.e. in chapter 9). There are 15 short chapters in all followed by a glossary of possible living dinosaurs and a list of possible pterosaur sightings.
The accounts are sourced from eyewitnesses as far as the author is able. He has also collated numerous newspaper reports that are brought to his readers' attention so they can assess the degree of corroboration they provide for his central thesis. There is a straightforward presentation of this thesis so that the accounts can be judged without any avoidable spin being provided by the author. Timothy O'Donnell (Philip's younger brother) provided the simple illustrations for the book which are commendable given his age at the time. It will be of use to cryptozoological researchers who want to know what is being thought by some outside mainstream research but wish to avoid publicity. Such heretical thought is often rigidly expelled and phobically deemed to warrant detention in an asylum. A proper index would enhance the book considerably and proof reading would remove some errors(e.g. Nambia for Namibia on page 71). My copy will take its humble place among weightier, but not so readily digestible, books(e.g.Mokele-Mbembe: Mystery Beast of the Congo Basin) in my library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open minded? Read this book and you'll know., 28 July 2008

This review is from: Dinosaurs: Dead or Alive? - Cryptozoology (Paperback)
After receiving "Dinosaurs, Dead or Alive" this morning I read it in 3 hours flat. Could not put it down. I am amazed at the vast number of sighting included and from so many parts of the world. Have read a few books on this subject already but was not aware that so much more is known. I have actually seen the dinosaur engravings in Carlisle Cathedral mentioned on page 14. This book could well be the best listing of such sightings available today. Not only because it is so extensive, but also because the probable species of the many creatures have been categorised. In fact, the Glossary on pages 105-107, lists no less than 33 different species.
The author has clearly done an incredible amount of original work - all the more astonishing in view of his age - just 14 years. With such a young author having access to this vast amount of information, it begs the question "Why isn't this taken notice of by the so called scientific experts?" The obvious answer lies in the challenging implications for the evolutionary believer, which are so adeptly explained by this young Christian. As the author says in chapter 15 "If a living dinosaur was discovered, it would put an end to the Geologic Column, and thus an end to evolutionary theory." I totally agree.
If your world-view is too sacred to be challenged by a good dose of reality and truth then don't by this book! But if your mind is not closed then buy it, read it, and pass it on. The world needs to know the truth that is being denied it by so called 'scientists' who are blinded by their own evolutionary dogma.
