"A great read for middle school students, the book provides vocational guidance while introducing the reader to a challenging, but very exciting, career as a paleontologist. It is a great addition to the career section of any library."

Science Books & Films, December 2009

"These first person dramatic anecdotes add greatly to a book that gives a well-balanced, succinct, and lucid treatment of the subject . . . This fascinating series is highly recommended as a purchase for both middle and high school libraries."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, November 2009

"The author gives an excellent explanation of how fossils are formed and details the pros and cons of expeditions in unexplored terrain . . . Highly recommended as a resource that readily fits into middle school science standards."

Children's Literature

"The reading flows so easily that I believe younger students who have an interest in science would enjoy the book as well. I highly recommend this book for students who want to explore scientific fields as well as increase their knowledge of dinosaurs and paleontology. I believe it would also make a good choice to read aloud to younger children as each chapter is independent of the others."

". . . this volume will appeal to dinophiles for its dino-data . . ."
