Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs is a comprehensive encyclopedia of all genera that have ever been included in the superorder Dinosauria, excluding class Aves (birds, both living and those known only from fossils) and purely vernacular terms. The list includes all commonly accepted genera, but also genera that are now considered invalid, doubtful (nomen dubium), or were not formally published (nomen nudum), as well as junior synonyms of more established names, and genera that are no longer considered dinosaurs. Many listed dinosaurs have since been reclassified as everything from birds to crocodilians to petrified wood. This encyclopedia Includes 1300+ Items including corresponding images and write ups which include Description, Location, History, videos and Stories behind the find and Much More.

    From Robert Prior
    The material in the sample chapters appears to be copied from the Old Earth Ministries website, which in turn is copied from Wikipedia. No citations for this were in the sample chapters (but may be present in part of the book not included in the sample). Wikipedia would be a better source, as it includes citations for its information, but this book might be useful as an off-line reference. I admit I'd have loved it when I was 8 years old and soaking up dinosaurs like a sponge, but I'd be disinclined to trust it very far now.
