A must-have book for dino-ecologists?

I've just had a first flip-though of an amazing new book, Evolution of the Insects, by by David Grimaldi and Michael S. Engel (Cambridge University Press). If there's anything else like it, I haven't seen it - it's profusely illustrated, for one thing, with lots of colour photos and drawings of Mesozoic (and other) insects. I can't imagine that, even though it is not a dinosaur book, it wouldn't have plenty of interest for readers of his list. Heck, I didn't know that culicid mosquitoes are only known as far back as the early Cretaceous - so how did they get that dilophosaur in Jurassic Park?
