About the Author:

Roger Tory Peterson, one of the world's greatest naturalists, received every major award for ornithology, natural science, and conservation as well as numerous honorary degrees, medals, and citations, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The Peterson Identification System has been called the greatest invention since binoculars. These editions include updated material by Michael O'Brien, Paul Lehman, Bill Thompson III, Michael DiGiorgio, Larry Rosche, and Jeffrey A. Gordon.

From Library Journal:

It is a rather silly idea to design a guide to dinosaurs in the same format as a field guide to living animals. For one thing, the only place a nonspecialist sees dinosaurs is in a museum, where they are likely to be labeled clearly already. The book's small pictures are not very enticing, and the brief text leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Also, the guide includes irrelevant sections about prehistoric mammals, human ancestors, and other nondinosaur creatures. Even at this inexpensive price, the book won't add as much to a dinosaur collection as would a really good picture book like Patricia Lauber's The News About Dinosaurs (Bradbury Pr., 1989).
