HUNTING DINOSAURS by Louie Psihoyos with John Knoebber (Random House: $23; 267 pp.). This breezy overview of the current research on dinosaurs reads like a series of magazine articles. The authors visit scientists, museums and excavation sites in Asia, Europe and the Americas, discussing discoveries and theories. Commendably, they avoid giving pat answers to the unresolved questions of warm-blooded versus cold-blooded and the cause(s) of the extinction of the dinosaurs. Psihoyos's dramatic, National Geographic-style color pictures give the book a potent appeal.
