From Chapter 1:
Contorted and twisted, their bodies lie scattered across the barren Wyoming countryside like dead flies on a window sill. But these are no flies, these are dinosaurs. Measuring up to 80 feet long (the length of a trailer-truck), the once mighty brontosaurs now lie embedded in the cold western limestone of Sheep Creek.
Arched backwards, with their necks and tails twisted and curved above their backs, the 50-ton monsters look as if they died in agony. It must have been a muscle-pulling, head-twisting, bellowing kind of agony, to leave them so distorted and bowed. Dozens of similarly contorted bodies have been found in bone quarry after desolate bone quarry all over the west. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The author probably has made some errors, but overall, he may have the right of it. I'm not sure about a few details of his theory, but those details are relatively minor. So far, every time I check to see if he has the facts correct, he does, or close enough. The book is packed with references to studies by respected scientists. (With all that, surely I'll find at least one mistake somewhere in there!)
A very interesting read. I cannot fault Felix's logic or research.
