Certainly agreed.  It's a real easy read...and sort of reads like a mystery 
novel.  It does a nice job of comparing and contrasting the quite similar 
expeditions of Stromer and Josh and his UPenn team.  The book is similar to 
Novacek and Horner's books, with science thrown in with a lot of adventure.  

I reviewed this book, and for those interested, check out 

I've yet to see the TV documentary, but I'm sure it will be excellent as well.

Congratulations to Josh and his team!
