      If you are interested in dinosaurs, the last two years have seen a slew of great books published, and there is more in the pipeline. The latest I am reviewing here is The Dinosaurs Rediscovered from the well-known British Professor of Vertebrate Palaeontology Michael J. Benton. With a huge number of possible topics you could write about, and an already saturated book market, . In some ways, the spectacularly successful film Jurassic Park () demarcates a turning point in the “dinosaur renaissance” in portraying dinosaurs as intelligent, social, and “hot blooded.” The revolution in dinosaur paleontology also has generated an immense groundswell of interest from amateur paleontologists as well, generating.
