Editorial Review

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Cover: Battle of the Dinosaur Bones: Othniel Charles Marsh vs Edward Drinker Cope

“These books showcase major scientific developments and the brutal competition behind the scenes. They are highly engaging accounts of researchers resorting to cheap shots, spying, and double crossing to take credit for pivotal discoveries. But they are also disturbing documentation of how ego can trump the greater good… Written cleanly and fluidly, these titles let the drama and occasional absurdity of the players’ actions speak for themselves.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
