From the Inside Flap

"The best general-audience dinosaur book since the Dinosaur Renaissance began in the 1970s."--Philip J. Currie, coeditor of Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs, from the foreword

"Dinosaur Odyssey is not only a personable and highly accessible tour of the up-to-date discoveries about the gigantic and famous. It also builds on dinosaur paleontology to far-ranging topics like extinction, climate change, and the possibility of life on Mars. The gift to the reader is both fascination and enlightenment."--Michael Novacek, author of Terra and Dinosaurs of the Flaming Cliffs

"An odyssey indeed! One of the world's leading dinosaur paleontologists, Sampson draws on a wide variety of sciences, from astronomy and cosmology to microbiology and ecology, in order to portray dinosaurs as living animals. The reader is in for a treat and will emerge with fresh and valuable insights."--Peter Dodson, author of The Horned Dinosaurs
