I strongly recommend Greg Paul's "Predatory Dinosaurs of the World".
Hopefully Dr Paul will produce some sister books, as I would love to see
more restorations of sauropods.
One other book of similar worth is Peter Wellnhofer's (sp?) "The
Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Pterosaurs." I'll check tonight when I get
home for some more.
