Publisher's Summary

We're living through a golden age of paleontological research that, in the last couple of decades, has radically changed our understanding of dinosaurs. Through candid interviews with the world’s top paleontologists, Professor Ben Garrod reveals new dinosaur facts from cutting edge research into the greatest animals ever to walk the planet.

When we're young, we all have a favourite dinosaur but, as time passes, other aspects of life get in the way. This is ultimate guide for grown-ups who have lost touch with their favourite childhood dinosaurs.

From the earliest cat-sized dinosaurs to enormous, feathered dinosaurs, there have been many significant discoveries in only the last 30 years. Every day we are learning more about the way the dinosaurs behaved and ultimately what happened to them at the very end.

Fantastic idea brilliant execution

I’ve been looking for a book like this for years! Thank you for fulfilling my childhood (and now adult) dreams of palaeontology. So much more yet to learn.

What a treat!

I am one of those young dinosaur enthusiasts who never grew out of it, so this was a real treat for me! Well researched and accessible, a really fascinating listen. I hope there will be more episodes to come!
My favourite is Baryonyx!

Loved this

Really interesting and accessible with a great presenter. His 'Chris Pratt' moment was superb! Was disappointed by his little lecture at the end about us killing the planet. Preaching to the choir... But we'll worth (several) listens.

Dino-mite!

This series was absolutely amazing! I binged the entire series it was so good. The narration was excellent, the information contained was eye opening, and the warning at the end was extremely poignant. Definitely worth a listen.
