'... the most comprehensive and useful text on dinosaurs on the market. It's both authoritative and whimsical, providing the student with a great background on dinosaurs and on the sciences needed to understand them. It's fun to read and great illustrations too.' Kevin Padian, University of California Museum of Paleontology, Berkeley
'Dinosaurs is an awesome textbook for college students of any level. I use it in my Dinosaurs class, and it is excellent AND affordable!' Julia Sankey, California State University, Stanislaus
'... a welcome updating and synthesis of what we currently know about the evolution and extinction of dinosaurs, both avian and non-avian. The extensive use of colorful illustrations, maps and graphics makes the text more lively and interesting, and increases its value as a teaching tool. I can unreservedly recommend this text for use in a Dinosaurs course, and plan to use it when I next teach my course on the subject.' William Gallagher, Rider University, New Jersey
'... a must-have for dinosaur courses, and I am excited to use the third edition in my class. The already all-encompassing, logically organized, and beautifully illustrated book now has color photographs and is updated with the latest science. Without a doubt it is the best book for college-level dinosaur classes.' James Parham, California State University, Fullerton
'The writing style is entertaining and the figures are engaging. ... Dinosaurs not only exposes students to the wonders of the field in ample depth, but also reinforces major biological principles that many students would otherwise only have limited exposure to.' Domenic D'Amore, Daemen College, New York
'Because they inspire a natural fascination, dinosaurs may be one of the best groups of organisms to help expose undergraduate students to general scientific principles. The latest edition of Fastovsky and Weishampel's textbook provides an an accessible yet thorough introduction into subjects spanning biology and earth science, using dinosaur evolution as its guide. The large number and clarity of John Sibbick's figures elevate this book well above its competitors.' Leon Claessens, College of the Holy Cross, Massachusetts
'... an essential library addition for anyone with an interest in dinosaurs and you don't have to be a science major to enjoy its contents. Thoroughly recommended.' Roger Smith, Dinosaurnews (www.dinosaurnews.org)
Dinosaurs continues to make science exciting and understandable to non-science majors through its emphasis on scientific concepts rather than endless facts. Fully updated and now integrating the theme of feathered dinosaurs, this beautifully illustrated, lively and engaging text will encourage students to ask questions and think like a scientist.

If you need this for class, I'm sorry but you might be forced to spend 30 bucks more, just to have a usable text for class.
