A proven success and a fascinating read...The Encyclopedia of Mammals certainly gives you excellent value for money. Painstakingly compiled, the encyclopedia is packed with fascinating information. The photography and illustrations are also very impressive...I cannot recommend it highly enough. (James Beattie, Outdoor Photography
