If you're going to spend that kind of money, the Don Glut's
_Dinosaurs: The Enclyclopedia_ is much more accessible than
_Dinosauria 2_, especially for someone who's now already familiar with
all the jargon.  It is not as bang-up-to-date as _D2_ unless you buy
all the supplements (which would make it about three times as
expensive), but it's not as thought the core volume has aged badly.
