An easy read that is very informative about fossil hunting on the dorset coast,lots of details about how to collect and look after fossils and the best places to find them.
Also good photographs to accompany the text.

Effectively only 70 pages and doesn't get into "Dorset" until page 45. Divides coast into 5 chapters which, while brief, are reasonably informative. Reasonably well illustrated with B&W photos. Chapters: 1 What are fossils, 2 Brief Tour of Dorsets Geologoy, 3 Fossils: clues to the past 4 Dorset Fossils, 5 Responsible and Safe Collecting 6 Mary Anning 7 The West Dorset Coast 8 Portland, 9 Weymouth Osmington, Kingstead, 10 Purbeck Coast 11 Studland to Hampshire 12 "The last chapter". Easy to read and generally useful (handy A5 size) but not the depth I was hoping for (but perhaps by expectations too high for this low cost book).

Bought 3 books before going to Lyme Regis, this one, The Official Guide to the Jurassic Coast: Dorset and East Devon's World (waste of money), and British Fossils (Shire Library) which was not good. This was the best of the three by far ....

Could've done with more location material to help the newer fossil hunter, but a solid enough introduction.

I have spent many happy hours in Lyme Regis fossil hunting and this book is great for giving me information on the many fossils I have found over the years

Not quite what we were expecting, perhaps a bit more suitable for somebody with more experience.

Discover Dorset Fossils is informative but not what I expected.
