    This was a really great place to start if you want to knowabout dinosaurs and paleontology and the only knowledge you have is watching the Jurassic Park movies Horner talks about digging one formation over the course of several years and the discoveries made there that drastically changed how we think about dinosaurs and their young I found this very scientific yet easy to understand The relatively short length also made this very accessible I now feel I have a good foundation of under This was a really great place to start if you want to knowabout dinosaurs and paleontology and the only knowledge you have is watching the Jurassic Park movies Horner talks about digging one formation over the course of several years and the discoveries made there that drastically changed how we think about dinosaurs and their young I found this very scientific yet easy to understand The relatively short length also made this very accessible I now feel I have a good foundation of understanding what paleontology is really about

    In another life I would like to be a palaeontologist I was obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid, as my 5 year old son is now, and they remain endlessly fascinating This is well written, interesting, entertaining and communicates well the excitement of such a big discovery.

    This book was given to me by my father many years ago Why I m not sure I guess like most kids, I was into dinosaurs and earning about them, like animals Maybe I was doing a report on them at the time Either way, somehow I ended up with this book and I can t seem to remember how.After finally reading this years later, I actually found this interesting I think the time this was given to me it would be over my head Needless to say, this book is actually an easy read This was obviously writt This book was given to me by my father many years ago Why I m not sure I guess like most kids, I was into dinosaurs and earning about them, like animals Maybe I was doing a report on them at the time Either way, somehow I ended up with this book and I can t seem to remember how.After finally reading this years later, I actually found this interesting I think the time this was given to me it would be over my head Needless to say, this book is actually an easy read This was obviously written for the everyday person rather then a dinosaur know it all.I m still interested in dinosaurs I discovered Maybe it s because I m a duck owner I have an interest in learning all things ducks Oddly, this book talks about duckbilled dinosaurs That made me really happy This book includes some nice mostly black and white images of the dinosaurs too I can see they do look like ducks in someways.Last year I read Jane Goodall and this book kind of reminded me of her book I m not really interested in science or science books, but when animals are involved, then I seem to be actually want to read science books

    My dad had this book many years ago when I was young and crazy about dinosaurs I remember being disappointed that it didn t have many pictures in it Now I m older, still crazy about dinosaurs, and finally getting to read this, and not as disappointed about the lack of illustrations This is one of the first if not THE first Jack Horner books from the 80s dino craze Clearly written, very informative, all the tough science y stuff explained clearly, a fantastic book I can see why it was such My dad had this book many years ago when I was young and crazy about dinosaurs I remember being disappointed that it didn t have many pictures in it Now I m older, still crazy about dinosaurs, and finally getting to read this, and not as disappointed about the lack of illustrations This is one of the first if not THE first Jack Horner books from the 80s dino craze Clearly written, very informative, all the tough science y stuff explained clearly, a fantastic book I can see why it was such a popular book, full of information on a strange career fossil hunting but extremely readable Wonderful Wish it were twice as long

    Easy to read, and he does a great job of making a paleontology nonfiction difficult to put down When I finished I was so sad it was over Great read.

    Easy to read, with good, basic explanations for non geologists and non paleontologists Also a rags to riches story of Jack Horner who started out as just a preparator technician at Princeton, who nonetheless had a lot of paleontological knowledge, and ended up the discoverer of dinosaur eggs and nests There was certainly some luck involved, as he readily admits, buts it s also the kind of luck that favors the prepared mind.

  7. Joi says:

    Four stars because his writing is easy to understand and he is clear about what are his ideas versus accepted science Note however since the book was originally written in the late 1980 s, some of his hypothesis are now accepted as theories I m now ready to volunteer for a dig

    I love this book Horner at his best, pre Jurassic Park The stuff about Maiasaurus herds and parenting is fantatastic A wonderful read.

    An interesting look at the early field work of one of America s most prolific dinosaur excavators It clearly illustrates how the elements of both luck and experience are important in producing the most successful scientists For someone completely new to the field, the book explains how the age, diet, family social structure, size, habitat, etc can all be deduced by careful observation and recovery of fossils The patience and attention to detail is necessary for the scientific success of a pal An interesting look at the early field work of one of America s most prolific dinosaur excavators It clearly illustrates how the elements of both luck and experience are important in producing the most successful scientists For someone completely new to the field, the book explains how the age, diet, family social structure, size, habitat, etc can all be deduced by careful observation and recovery of fossils The patience and attention to detail is necessary for the scientific success of a paleontologist but that same set of skills does not always translate as well into writing The book is definitely informative but it takes some patience to sort through the details Nevertheless, after reading the book, I felt a lotinformed about paleontology in general and the important specific contributions of Horner My favorite incident from the book dealt with Horner s mentoring of an undergraduate to the point that she presents her research at a scientific meeting Her project was simple but done well yielded interesting findings and won first place for student presentation A huffy research scientist comments, anybody could have done it Horner responds, anybody COULD have But no one else did That sums up the outcomes of some 5 10 undergraduate projects that I likewise successfully mentored to first places over the years

    It was very interesting for the most part However I disliked the formatting, every chapter had to start back at the beginning of the dig Aside from that finding baby dinosaurs and the nests really filled out some questions on their society.
