Sauropod book

Got the following from Indiana U Press that they asked me to pass on:

Indiana University Press is pleased to announce the recent publication

Thunder-Lizards: The Sauropodomorph Dinosaurs
Edited by Virginia Tidwell and Kenneth Carpenter
The large quadrupedal herbivores known as sauropods roamed the planet
from the Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous. The popular image of
these lumbering giants, placidly consuming ferns, has been greatly
revised in recent years by new discoveries and new theories about
behavior and physiology. This book presents 21 new studies of the
sauropods. Part I looks at some sauropods old and new, Part II at
juvenile and adult specimens and ontogenetic variation within species.
Part III concerns morphology and biomechanics, while Part IV takes up
issues of biogeography.
