Gelatinous squid

If I had to choose one, which should it be? Or perhaps something else entirely?

What are you trying to understand or get out of these books?

Basically, I want a book that correctly represents the paleontological state of the art- representative variety, good science and up to date accurate depictions.

Have not read the books but the reviews I've read seem good on both.  Cannot go wrong with either however Weishampel's book might be a bit dated.  

 

Here is one review from SVP.

 

A Review of Dinosaurs a Concise Natural History by David E Fastovsky and David B Weishampel illustrated by John Sibbick 2009 Cambridge University.pdf
