The Dinosaur Heresies: New Theories Unlocking the Mystery of the Dinosaurs and Their Extinction

The Dinosaur Heresies: New Theories Unlocking the Mystery of the Dinosaurs and Their Extinction - Robert T. Bakker Bakker was really the skunk at the garden party when his book suggested, among other things, that dinosaurs were not the cold-blooded reptiles we've always believed them to be but rather warm-blooded creatures from which our modern day birds descended. This theory is now widely considered to be the prevailing truth but when this book hit the scene in the late '80s it caused quite an uproar.

This is a very readable book and I'd like to get my hands on the updated edition some day. If you never outgrew your childhood obsession with dinosaurs then you will get a real kick out of this book.
