‘An excellent book, that has been lovingly crafted by a dedicated team of researchers and artists. It provides a comprehensive overview of what is arguably one of the most successful type of tetrapod to have ever evolved. We are delighted that this book is now available in English and we are happy to recommend it.' -- Everything Dinosaur
