A Grown-Up Guide to Dinosaurs, by Ben Garrod (author, narrator)

Audible Original, July 2019

As kids, most of us loved dinosaurs, and had a favorite dinosaur. As adults, other things, more urgent at least, if not necessarily more important, have displaced dinosaurs at the center of our lives. Not every dinosaur lover grows up to be a dinosaur scientist!

But Ben Garrod agrees that that's a terrible shame, and presents a really engaging, informative, entertaining summary of the current state of our knowledge of dinosaurs.

This includes the fact that dinosaurs, at least one branch of that large family, are still with us, in the form of birds. Yes, really. Birds are dinosaurs.

It's a lively, enjoyable, short summary of what we know about dinosaurs, and may have missed out on learning along the way, while we were busy being adults.


This was one of Audible's free offerings this month.
