The dinosaurs. Sixty-six million years ago, the Earth’s most fearsome creatures vanished. Today they remain one of our planet’s great mysteries. Now The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs reveals their extraordinary, 200-million-year-long story as never before.
After reading The Rise and Fall of Dinosaurs, I think ... Brusatte’s mastery of his field, formidable explanatory powers and engaging style have combined to produce a masterpiece of science writing for the lay reader. I would add that you’ll find Rise and Fall fascinating even if you don’t give a damn about dinosaurs — but first, show me someone who doesn’t give a damn about dinosaurs.
The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs abounds with this completely winning blend of technical expertise and storytelling ability ... Brusatte's recounting of the millions of years of dinosaur dominance makes for very nerdy, very thrilling reading.
...an insider’s view of the history of both dinosaurs and dinosaur science. With both dino-geek glee and science-writer exactitude, Brusatte travels the world as he tells the story of the rise of dinosaurs ... Superbly illustrated with photos and art, this is popular-science writing at its best.
