Media reviews

The text is very appropriate for an introductory course on dinosaurs. The material is up to date, the pedagogy is excellent, and the explanations of technical material are accessible. I've already used this text, and will continue to do so - the new edition is an excellent improvement. Raymond Freeman-Lynde, University of Georgia "Introduction to the Study of Dinosaurs is packed with information and covers the essential topics thoroughly. Martin's style makes the reading fun and easy, so that the information is easy to assimilate. In addition, the website is an excellent resource, providing a wealth of information and links for further exploration." Gus Winterfeld, Idaho State University
