This is the book that fueled the "Jurassic Park" phenomenon. Fascinating stuff.

Bakker is undoubtedly the controversial and exciting dinosaurologist of the day. His ideas of active, behaviorly complex, warm-blooded dinosaurs have shaken orthodox views and stimulated both public interest and renewed scientific research. In this book he reviews many of his well-known ideas about dinosaur physiology, feeding habits, running ability, taxonomy, and extinction, and offers tidbits on more minor details, e.g., whether dinosaurs had a gizzard. He writes in a colorful, even impassioned prose more akin to political rhetoric than analytic science. This book is revolutionary.

A great book on the subject dinosaur evolution, extinction. Really well written and covers a whole lot of the questions of what they ate and how they lived. Bakker also develops his proofs of warm bloodedness. Well written and fun to read.
