If it even happened to dinosaurs, could it ever happen to humankind as well?

This is a tale of surprises: a group of small, docile creatures that lived in the limited ecosystem of the Triassic Period survived many disasters and became the colossal dinosaurs that terrorized the world during the Jurassic Period. While their newborns were not larger than a pigeon, the adults could reach meters in length and tons in weight. Yet, the ground beneath their feet and the sky above their heads were not static either. One day, the winds of fortune changed course; an asteroid ended the 150-million-year reign of these mind-bogglingly diverse and infinitely terrorizing colossal creatures and rewrote the history of the world. Life had entered into a new adventure. After the screaming calls of the dinosaurs were no longer heard, the mammals emerged from the dark hole they had been hiding for millions of years, and one of them authored The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs! The only remnants of the dinosaurs were the birds perched on the window of the writer of this tale.

The rising star of paleontology, Steve Brusatte traces the footsteps of the ancient heroes of this tale full of disasters, rebirths, and merciless struggles, in various places from Poland’s lake region and Argentina’s mountain canyons to a construction zone in China. The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs emerged as a result of collaboration of a handful of adventurers who searched for fossils all over the world just like Brusatte, without minding the cold, humidity, dust, and hunger. On the one hand, the work unites Africa with America, and the Tyrannosaurus Rex with pigeons, and on the other hand it leads us to Brusatte’s inescapable question: Could it really happen to us as well?
