I have a copy of "Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs": it is really great!
References are numerous, all topics are discussed, from biometrics to
Chinle Formation! The articles are in alphabetical order, and the
Encyclopedia is very well searchable, with lots of cross-references. I do
not know if "The Complete Dinosaur" is as good as the Encyclopedia, but I
cannot imagine it would be much better. I have seen somewhere that "The
Complete Dinosaur" was better for the layman than the Encyclopedia...
