Publisher's Summary

We're living through a golden age of paleontological research that, in the last couple of decades, has radically changed our understanding of dinosaurs. Through candid interviews with the world’s top paleontologists, Professor Ben Garrod reveals new dinosaur facts from cutting edge research into the greatest animals ever to walk the planet.

When we're young, we all have a favourite dinosaur but, as time passes, other aspects of life get in the way. This is ultimate guide for grown-ups who have lost touch with their favourite childhood dinosaurs.

From the earliest cat-sized dinosaurs to enormous, feathered dinosaurs, there have been many significant discoveries in only the last 30 years. Every day we are learning more about the way the dinosaurs behaved and ultimately what happened to them at the very end.

My 9 year old daughter loves this!

My daughter is fascinated by dinosaurs. I got this so that we could listen to it together in the car on the way to school and other drives to keep us entertained. She is loving it, and learning! And so am I!

A short overview

This six installment presents a succinct overview of what is known about dinosaurs. If one has had some interest in these prehistoric beasts, this program will be basic, but interesting. If interested to dig deeper, may I suggest The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs by Steve Brusatte.

fun and interesting facts

great content. should be presented functionally as chapters, and called episodes for continuity and hands free.

Worth A Listen

In my opinion, a well done introduction to dinosaurs. It is very surface level, but this works as it is an introduction. As an adult who hasn’t kept up with the research and just remembers reading about them as a kid I learned something, which is a win I guess. Hope you enjoy it too.

well worded and fun

very much what I expected! I loved Dino's as a kid and this was a fantastic basic reintroduction to the topic. I'm not really a science person but the language was all very digestable to me. someone with a background already probably wouldn't enjoy it as much.
