Format: Paperback
This book is a very easy to read, amazingly detailed look at what it would take, in reality, to bring a dinosaur back to life with fossilized DNA (fragments). In his step-by-step approach he takes you through the test-tubes, the centrifuges, and especially the problems that would be associated with each step. This book would be very interesting for anyone with the remotest interest in science. It is helpful (not required) to have some general science background to help understand some of the concepts fully. The ONLY slight drawback that I found was that the book has pessimestic overtones throughout about the film "Jurassic Park."

Format: Paperback
I am a budding biology teacher, and I found the book to be very factual and technically accurate. I have had a fascination for dinosaurs since I was a kid, and genetics became an interest in college. The books and blockbuster movies have intrigued me greatly. This book brought the printed page and the film strips from the silver screen and the bookshelves to the dissecting table in a unique fashion that is fair truthful and quite humorous at times.

Ian Malcolm and John Hammond both die at the end of Jurassic park and yet in the sequal Lost World they are both alive again.
