Editorial Reviews

Review

A Library Journal Best Science and Technology Book of the Year
 
“Horner is at his best: provocative yet firmly grounded in science… His goal is to make people think about how evolution works, and by extension, about our own origins.”—New Scientist
 
“Straight from the scientific frontier, Horner’s work should excite anyone who’s dreamed of walking with dinosaurs.”—Booklist
 
“Scientists can finally begin to answer evolutionary questions that have puzzled researchers for decades.”—Smithsonian

About the Author

John “Jack” Horner is one of the world’s foremost paleontologists, credited with finding the first dinosaur eggs in the Western Hemisphere, the first evidence of dinosaur colonial nesting, the first evidence of parental care among dinosaurs, and the first dinosaur embryos. He served as the inspiration for Paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant in Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, and as the technical advisor on all of the Jurassic Park films. Horner is Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana, and Regents Professor of Paleontology at Montana State University.

James Gorman is deputy science editor of the New York Times and editor of its Science Times section.
