Just like every other kids in the 90’s, Jurassic Park was my first introduction to the world of dinosaurs. I bought A Grown-Up Guide to Dinosaurs by Ben Garrod as part of the Audible Originals monthly selection for July.

Divided into six chapters, each chapter included interviews with paleontologists with insightful commentary.

  1. What is a Dinosaur?
  2. Size Matters

    I learned about the Dreadnoughtus and the Patagotitan finds.

  3. Feathered Freaks

    The velociraptor shown in Jurassic Park was not a velociraptor, but rather a Deinonychus.

  4. Who Needs Bones?

    How fossils help us understand dinosaurs, including their poop?

  5. What is Not a Dinosaur?

    There were no dinosaurs in the oceans. They were called Plesiosaurs.

  6. The Fall of Dinosaurs

    We all know how that happened.

Overall, it was an interesting and captivating read that I definitely recommend.
