Drawing on the extensive dinosaur resources of the Natural History Museum in London, this book stands out as special with its splendid visuals and intelligent organization and text. But ultimate, shmultimate; even John Ostrom's brief foreword contradicts such a notion by acknowledging that "where dinosaurs are concerned, the quest goes on." The introductory section explores dinosaur behavior and anatomy, but the core of this excellent (if not ultimate) book comprises 55 superbly detailed dinosaur profiles. An A to Z listing of all known dinosaurs follows (with pronunciation yes!). Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
