Publisher's Summary

World-renowned paleontologist Kenneth Lacovara reveals how understanding dinosaurs can help us better understand our own biology - and our future.

Dinosaurs captivate people. Men and women, young and old, have a deep fascination with the species that roamed Earth before us. In this audiobook, paleontologist Dr. Kenneth Lacovara takes listeners on a journey - back to when dinosaurs roamed the Earth - to reveal how dinosaurs achieved feats unparalleled by any other group of animals.

Lacovara shows why these sublimely adaptable, remarkable creatures deserve our awe and respect. Lacovara blends exploration in remote locations across the globe with the latest imaging and modeling techniques from engineering to medicine. This eye-opening look into the strange and calamitous event that wiped out the dinosaurs weaves together the story of their existence on Earth with our own. Why Dinosaurs Matter is compelling and engaging and a great reminder that our place on this planet is precarious and potentially fleeting. We must look to the past to protect our future.

    "humbling, eloquent, and beautifully portrayed"

    The journey Dr. Lacovara paints is wonderful and drives to the heart of being precariously human. The story leaves you feeling humbled and awe inspired by our place in the cosmos. The ending was brilliantly put in, addressing the ever increasing issues of climate change.

    Thank you for this excellent flashback to my undergrad days in your evolution/paleo courses at Drexel. - Jesse S.
