Great field guide - yet to test it, but it seems to be well designed and illustrated - not too heavy or too large for field use.

Kindle version very difficult to use as a useful identification guide. 23 July 2014
By D. J Stemke - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It likely has most of the frog species of Australia, but I find this kindle book extremely difficult to use effectively. The obvious advantage of a Kindle book is that it is one less book to carry, but that's the only thing that I really like about a Kindle version.It is organized in a poor way; four animals are described and each one has a map followed by colored drawings of the four animals and then the next four animals are described. I find myself having to flip through at least half the book to try and identify animals, very time consuming. The descriptions are fine, but I find it difficult to id animals from the drawings. I wish the author had put animals together on plates, possibly with a small inlay of the range maps and page numbers for the description. As it is I had to get an additional frog reference anyway in Australia. At this price it is a pretty poor reference.
