The Top Three Dinosuar Books for Adults

Most adults probably haven’t thought about dinosaurs since they were kids. If the last time you paid any attention to paleontology was the 1980s you’re in for a surprise. Many paradigms have changed and the general picture of what life was like in the Mesozoic has shifted substantially. This list is by no means comprehensive, but if you’re curious about dinosaurs or, if you have children and want to be able to answer their dino-related questions, it’s a fine start.

Published: Broadway Books - May 15th, 2018

Physics is sometimes summed up as "the study of real things." No artificial categories, no assumptions. Kakalios takes us through what is for many a fairly ordinary day, describing the physics of items we routinely encounter: toasters, smart phones, motion sensors, etc. There's a lot that goes on in these mundane devices. So much so that the mechanics of a routine day are more remarkable than we think. ~ Reviewed by Nate George
