The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs: A New History of a Lost World

New York Times Bestseller"THE ULTIMATE DINOSAUR BIOGRAPHY,"hails Scientific American: A sweeping andrevelatory new history of the age of dinosaurs, from one of our finest young scientists."This is scientific storytelling at its most visceral, striding with the beasts through their Triassic dawn, Jurassic dominance, and abrupt demise in the Cretaceous." NatureThe dinosaurs. Sixty-six million years ago, the Earths most fearsome creatures vanished. Today they remain one of our planets great mysteries. Now The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs reveals their extraordinary, 200-million-year-long story as never before.In this captivating narrative (enlivened with more than seventy original illustrations and photographs),Steve Brusatte, a young American paleontologist who has emerged as one of the foremost stars of the fieldnaming fifteen new species and leading groundbreaking scientific studies and fieldworkmasterfully tells the complete, surprising, and new history of the dinosaurs, drawing on cutting-edge science to dramatically bring to life their lost world and illuminate their enigmatic origins, spectacular flourishing, astonishing diversity, cataclysmic extinction, and startling living legacy. Captivating and revelatory, The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs is a book for the ages.Brusatte traces the evolution of dinosaurs from their inauspicious start as small shadow dwellersthemselves the beneficiaries of a mass extinction caused by volcanic eruptions at the beginning of the Triassic periodinto the dominant array of species every wide-eyed child memorizes today, T. rex, Triceratops, Brontosaurus, and more. This gifted scientist and writer re-creates the dinosaurs peak during the Jurassic and Cretaceous, when thousands of species thrived, and winged and feathered dinosaurs, the prehistoric ancestors of modern birds, emerged. The story continues to the end of the Cretaceous period, when a giant asteroid or comet struck the planet and nearly every dinosaur species (but not all) died out, in the most extraordinary extinction event in earths history, one full of lessons for today as we confront a sixth extinction.Brusatte also recalls compelling stories from his globe-trotting expeditions during one of the most exciting eras in dinosaur researchwhich he calls a new golden age of discoveryand offers thrilling accounts of some of the remarkable findings he and his colleagues have made, including primitive human-sized tyrannosaurs; monstrous carnivores even larger than T. rex; and paradigm-shifting feathered raptors from China.An electrifying scientific history that unearths the dinosaurs epic saga, The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs will be a definitive and treasured account for decades to come....

  • Lauriann

    I have long wanted a book about dinosaurs for adults. This was it. I LOVED it and can’t stop talking about it. Just read it.

  • Girish

    Phew! A pop history on Dinosaurs written by a Paleantologist is enough to trigger your curiosity and awaken the science geek in you. However, you do worry about a Ross Geller level book you will be stuck with for ages. Stephen Brusatte is more Douglas Adams than Ross Geller and he tells a story that is at once engaging and enlightening.

    Imagine a huge jigsaw puzzle that has to pieced together. The challenge is that the pieces are found years apart and you have dedicated science heroes who try to

    Even though I love dinosaurs, I don't really read science books...ever. So, I was surprised I liked this book, let alone finished it. It was quite informative, especially for those, like me, who haven't been able to keep up with all of the findings in this subject for the last couple of decades. I think I liked this book because it was part memoir as well as science. The author has a sense of humor, and is only three years older than me, so his pop culture and generation comments were right on p ...more

    Finished it, loved it, enjoyed every word, hope he writes another!

    The funny thing about reading about past life on Earth is that one needs the newest, most up-to-date literature one can find. Science is often like that, but books on paleontology, where new discoveries come in almost every week and old ideas and theories are altered, magnified or just thrown out the window, is especially so. (Okay, so is physics, astronomy, medicine, etc. etc.) I just find it an interesting juxtaposition - oldest

    How I wish there was a time machine and I could go back and experience the dinosaurs live in action - off course from a safe spot!

    Reading through this book is that time machine.

    What I loved:

    - The science of deduction and simplistic narration, churning out facts from speculations.

    - How the changes in world geography gave way to the evolution of dinosaurs?

    - Why and how their bodies triggered and sustained the growth into giants?

    - The evolutionary purpose of various body parts.

    - The skin color and

    I haven't thought much about dinosaurs since I was in elementary school, so this was an absorbing and engaging look at what we do -- and don't -- know about dinosaurs at this point. So much has happened in the decades since my youth, and getting caught up was more than worthwhile. There are over 50 dinosaur species discovered each year (!!) and more, science agrees that birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs (!!!). I didn't realize that the Burpee, which is just down the road from me, has suc ...more

    THE RISE AND FALL OF THE DINOSAURS: A New History of a Lost World. (2018). Steve Brusatte. ****.

    The author is a paleontologist at the University of Edinburgh, although he was a native-born America from Chicago. He is a practicing scientist in the field, and has had several important discoveries attributed to him. Since the book was published this year, it is probably only about two years out of date on some key pieces of information. It is saved by having the word ‘history’ in the title. The aut

    I loved the parts about dinosaurs. Fun facts, history, evidence and speculation on behavior, recent discoveries, distribution as the continents divided and spread out. It's a compact assessable update on dinosaurs large and small. Oh, just another coelophysis, no this is something new!

    I tuned out the sections of the author's personal experience. I wasn't interested. Based on other GR reviews, that's probably for the best.
