Borneo's lizards revealed--at last! 30 Mar. 2013
By Doctor S - Published on Amazon.com
The author of "Lizards of Borneo" has given us a true gem. Borneo -- the name still conjures images of the rare and exotic -- is home to a wonderful assortment of little-known lizards. Now a true expert, who both lives and works in Sarawak, gives us a well-illustrated guide to the lizards of that island. Many species are presented, many in a book and with colour photos for the first time, and the natural history notes, though brief, provide a considerable amount of information. Dr Das also writes a useful introduction to lizards and the special environments of Borneo, making the book useful as a field guide as well as a reference for herpetologists working with Bornean species.

Additionally, because many species found on Borneo are also found on other Indonesian islands, this book will be useful to anyone interested in the fauna of the larger SE Asian region.

The book is small enough to easily fit into a pocket, so it is a true field guide. Das provides an extensive bibliography, with many titles previously unfamiliar to me. The cost of the book is spot-on and the book is a good value for the price. I recommend this book highly.
