I picked up a copy of: Dinosaurs and other mesozoic reptiles of California by Richard P. Hilton. It was being remaindered for $12.98 (hardbound). Was it worth getting?
This question is so bizarre that I'll pose my counter-question in public: Why don't you open the book and start to read in order to see if it was worth getting?
I guess it probably was, but I haven't read it, so I don't have an opinion on it, in case you are looking for book reviews even though you have the book itself.
