Format: Hardcover
This beautifully produced book is simply fantastic. The paper is of a very high quality, as are the numerous photographs, some of which are astounding. The book is well chapterised, academically referenced, and answers just about any query one could possibly have about the European badger. It deals with the badger's biology, its home and environs, diet, patterns of behaviour, reproductive and parenting habits, demography, badgerwatching, and there is also a well-researched chapter on Bovine TB. It is slightly expensive, but is probably underpriced, considering its all-round quality.

With all the "politics" about badgers in the UK, it is not easy to get unbiased information. This book provides a wealth of factually-accurate data, and lots of illuminating anecdotes about many many years of badger watching. Whilst it 'aint the cheapest badger book, do not be deterred by the price; as it is absolutely worth every single penny!

Truly the best book about badgers. It combines in-depth factual information with the authors experience and many illuminating anecdotes about badgers and their nocturnal behaviour. It is a book that every-one who studies or deals with badgers should read from cover to cover, and keep on their shelf for reference.

Format: Hardcover
As an active badger support worker of some years, this book is without doubt the best available on the subject of the eurasian badger, as it occurs in the UK.
While providing a wealth of information, there are personal anecdotes that brighten up what could become a heavy 'purely factual' reference book. The amount of 'real' information should meet the needs of even the most serious student of these fascinating and sometimes much eroniously maligned, though highly popular, animals.
The price of this book is a bit daunting, but for anyone who is serious about the subject, it is well worth the outlay. Given the levels of interest in 'badgery' kind a reprint would not come amiss !

Format: Hardcover
I first got into badgers back in the 80s when I watched the retro cartoon "the racoons"...shortly after this I saw what I thought was a racoon but my father informed me it was in fact a badger. From then on I was fascinated by badgers and have collected many items relating to them. My collection boasts a variety of books etc as well as genuine stuffed badgers, some of which I stuffed myself...I love stuffing a badger.

This book is definately up there with the best in my collection, it's in depth detail and high quality images of badgers are a by far the best I've seen, particularily the close ups of some of the badgers, brilliant.

It is one of the foremost books on the subject of Badgers, it has an indepth account of their ecology, behaviour, and their management.
Ernest Neal and Chris Cheeseman have combined their fantastic knowledge to create a Badger Bible.
For all those that are interested or love badgers this is a must have book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was driving through the English countryside in February 2013 with my girlfriend and we saw a dead badger on the side of the road and then another a further mile up the road. We encountered one more dead badger about a mile later and my girlfriend informed me that the badgers were coming out of winter hibernation and confused and thus walking onto the road to their deaths. 'Do badgers hibernate?' I asked. 'Yes, they do' she replied adamantly 'along with hedgehogs and other woodland creatures'. I took out my phone and googled badgers only to find out that British badgers definitely DO NOT hibernate. This book has subsequently been the perfect birthday gift for my girlfriend as it has allowed her to study the habits of badgers properly and it reminds her not to talk of the top of her head about even ridiculous things like badgers. The word badger is now the perfect conduit in almost any situation with which to ask, 'do you really know what you're talking about?' This is a great book. I love it!

Although written over 30 years ago, this is still an excellent and comprehensive picture of the life of the badger.
