Editorial Reviews

Review

"Combining gross and molecular anatomy with genomic information, Horner believes, makes re-creating a dinosaur a genuine prospect that he urges his colleagues to pursue. Straight from the scientific frontier, Horner's work should excite anyone who's dreamed of walking with dinosaurs."

-- "Booklist"

"Horner wants to introduce readers to 'evo devo, ' a jazzy moniker for evolutionary development. But first he wants to tell a story--and it's a good one...The polished narrative has a comfortable, intelligent flow...[It's] evo devo for the everyday reader, with the personal stuff adding color."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Patrick Lawlor's narration of Horner's fascinating book is mostly enthusiastic and engaging, and he's comfortable with the scientific jargon."

-- "AudioFile"

"Provocative."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Sure to appeal to dinosaur fans, this readable account of innovative science is recommended for public as well as academic library collections."

-- "Library Journal"

"The authors cover highly technical scientific fields in a manner accessible to lay audiences, who will be captivated by Audie Award nominee Patrick Lawlor's Mr. Wizard-like zeal."
