5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, witty, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Yesterdays: Unique and Speculative Views of Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Animals (Paperback)
A very odd book, almost a part of the growing genre of "speculative evolution", but based on real fossils and cleverly questioning our interpretations of those fossils. It's on one hand very specialised in deconstructing dinosaur art, but on the other hand, very accessible and enchanting because it reminds us that dinosaurs were not mere structures of bones, but living creatures with their own idiosyncratic behaviour. We might never know how they behaved, but we are reminded nonetheless that they were real living creatures, which could be as odd and as unpredictable as any creature alive today. It has to be seen in the context of other books on dinosaurs, but as such, I highly recommend it.
