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.
