From the Publisher:

More reviews! "As befits an encyclopedia, it mixes short and long articles on topics ranging from African dinosaurs to the Dalton Wells Quarry - an important new fossil site in Utah. The anatomical terminology gets a bit thick in places, but the glossary should rescue you. This book is browsable, [and should be] within easy reach when your eight-year-old (or you) is in a curious mood." (NEW SCIENTIST)

"For those of you who haven't liked any animal that's walked, crawled, swum, or flown since the Jurassic Period, fear not: The 1000-page Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs tells you everything you ever wanted to know about these cold-blooded creatures - including the possibility that some of them were actually warm-blooded." (EXPRESS BOOKS)

"The authoritative and comprehensive Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs covers not only specific animals but also dinosaur reproduction, behavior, physiology, and extinction. The book is written, edited, and illustrated by dozens of the world's dino experts. References follow each entry, and extensive cross-references lead to other articles in the book." (EARTH)

"So far as I know, this book is the first of its kind: a comprehensive encyclopedia of dinosaur lore in all its aspects. In view of current dinomania, this book should be available in all libraries catering to either adolescents or adults. I'm certain that it will be heavily used. Serious amateurs and dinosaur specialists will need a copy as well." (JOURNAL OF GEOSCIENCE EDUCATIION)

"This near 900 page tome, so heavily stocked with information, is clearly the most valuable reference tool currently available. This is an extremely worthwhile book. In fact, if you own it and Don Glut's new encyclopedia, and provide you keep up with the scientific literature, you'll have 90% of the repository knowledge necessary to understand dinosaurs in a detailed fashion." (DINOSAUR WORLD)

"...this volume will become a benchmark in dinosaurian studies, vertebrate, paleontology, and biology in general for many years to come. The Encyclopedia's treatment of aspects of dinosaur biology and related biological topics is refreshingly conservative in nature. ...issues of concern and controversy in the public arena such as evolution and extinction are carefully and thoughtfully addressed. ...the total package is a remarkable contribution. No doubt, it will become even more useful in the future. Well-worn copies of this volume will no doubt be found as a standard of comparison on the bookshelves of biologist, paleontologist, students, and in interested public for many years to come." (THE AMERICAN BIOLOGY TEACHER)

"In summary, this is a BIG book, with HEAPS of information, it is about DINOSAURS and for its size it is competitively priced; the message is loud and clear, 'BUY ME'. I am sure that thousands already have bought it and it is probably just what they want, so what do I know? I fear that the answer to that question is also equally loud and clear." (David Norman in GEOLOGICAL MAGAZINE, 1999)

"The book is an excellent and up-to-date summary of the group, and deserves a place in any collection catering to existing or would-be paleontologists." (Bruce H. Tiffney in AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL, 1999)

"...a well-organized, reputable, and comprehensive resource, and a must for all academic libraries. The scope and authority...is unmatched." (Jonathan Nabe in E-STREAMS)

"This encyclopedia is a comprehensive compendium of information about dinosaurs organized in a manner that expedites ease of use for the serious and scholarly study of this antural phenomenon that existed millions of years ago. This reference should be in high school, college and public libraries." (Jessie M. Stewart in TOP OF TEXAS REVIEWS, Spring 1999)
