Here are dinosaurs as you've never seen them before in the book that started the renaissance in dinosaur books. Here are dinosaurs that are swift, stunning, scary and stupendous, presented in a lavish format with over seventy pages of full color illustrations and dozens in black and white. Using the latest paleontological research The Dinosaurs presents a scientifically accurate and fantastic new look at the way dinosaurs lived: how they moved, ate, dueled, drank and even made love. From ten-ton brontosaurs to thirty-foot hadrosaurs, here is a story more fantastic than fantasy itself.

Illustrated by William Stout, internationally acclaimed artist, whose dinosaur illustrations have been displayed in museums worldwide.

Narrated by William Service, author of Owl, which Time magazine called, "one of the most elegant and perceptive pieces of nature writing since T.H. White fell in love with a goshawk.

Edited by Byron Preiss, editor of the bestseller The Planets, The Universe and The Microverse.

With an introduction and scientific commentary by Dr. Peter Dodson, respected paleontologist at the University of Pennsylvania.
