Pardon this is it has already been mentioned on this list.
Today I was in a bookstore and saw what to me is a new book (published
Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the
Law, and My Life
by Peter L. Larson, Kristin Donnan (the actual writer), Robert Bakker
I'm glad I didn't buy it for the retail $26.95 (U.S. dollars), because
/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/103-8844437-4208635 has it for $18.87. That's a 30%
savings, before postage.
Anyhow, the story seems to be well-told and to have all the details of
the Sue story from the inside, and lots of fascinating photos, etc.
Of course I didn't succeed in reading it all standing there in the book
store, but I got the impression that it may be the most interesting thing
yet written on the Sue episode. There are a lot of nice color photos, too.
