"This comprehensive volume is essential for anyone with a serious interest in dinosaurs. Students of dinosaur anatomy and evolution will find it invaluable.... Highly recommended." ―Choice, January 2010
"Fernando Novas has been in the thick of things, personally involved as a researcher in some of the major issues in the renaissance of South American dinosaur paleontology. Among his important discoveries are the abelisaurids, a previously unknown group of Gondwanan predators (with José Bonaparte); the extremely primitive Eoraptor; and new finds of herrerasaurs. He gives personal as well as professional insights to these finds. Definitely recommended!" ―Tom Holtz, University of Maryland
"This book is the first of its kind to describe the dinosaurs of South America. It is well illustrated with black-and-white figures and 20 color plates. Anyone with a technical interest in dinosaurs will want this book!" ―scienceblogs.com, September 1, 2009
