Review

"A wonderful book, crammed with information that will surprise you."--Truthdig "This thought-provoking book is a must read not only for dinosaur enthusiasts and science educators but anyone interested in the larger context of life."--Magill's Literary Annual / Salem Press "Sampson is right on target... There is no better overview available than 'Dinosaur Odyssey.'"--Earth Magazine "A great in-depth read for those seriously interested in the history of dinosaurs."--Dig

From the Inside Flap

"The best general-audience dinosaur book since the Dinosaur Renaissance began in the 1970s."Philip J. Currie, coeditor ofEncyclopedia of Dinosaurs, from the foreword

Dinosaur Odyssey is not only a personable and highly accessible tour of the up-to-date discoveries about the gigantic and famous. It also builds on dinosaur paleontology to far-ranging topics like extinction, climate change, and the possibility of life on Mars. The gift to the reader is both fascination and enlightenment.”Michael Novacek, author ofTerra and Dinosaurs of the Flaming Cliffs

"An odyssey indeed! One of the world's leading dinosaur paleontologists, Sampson draws on a wide variety of sciences, from astronomy and cosmology to microbiology and ecology, in order to portray dinosaurs as living animals. The reader is in for a treat and will emerge with fresh and valuable insights."Peter Dodson, author of The Horned Dinosaurs
