I also read this book, and the most interesting passage is the one excerpted
at the book sellers' web sites. The book is slim for a saga, with much
filler such as the history of paleontology thrown in. Few (one?)
paleontologists would cooperate with Mr. Fiffer either, and the book is
written with a one-sided point of view.
There is indeed an extraordinary story surrounding this T. rex, but we are
still waiting for the paper.
