7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Wildlife Bookworm on 5 July 2007
Format: Hardcover
When I embarked on this book I was little more than curious about tigers and their environment. Now, having worked my way through 160 pages of incredible photographs, anecdotes, and facts I have come to appreciate the wonder of this species, found answers to any questions I could have asked, and realised how much we have to do if we are to save them from extinction.

Although the book contains 12 distinct chapters it is basically split into two main sections - the lifestyle of tigers, and their conservation.

The lifestyle part is perhaps the most interesting with some of the best photographs of tigers you will ever see, and wonderful stories about individual tigers that can be emotional, inspirational or simply phenomenal. Many of the chapters such as those on man-eaters and parenting are truly fascinating. Some individuals come up several times, if you read back through the pages where they are mentioned you can develop a sort of life story of the individuals for yourself. I found this most enjoyable.

The conservation part however may be the more important as it highlights the plight of the worlds remaining tigers - their downfall of the last 100 years, the unstable situation at the present time, and what needs to be done in the future. This part also includes an extensive 'how to' section which shows readers the best places to see tigers in the wild and great tips on how to go about it, including some excellent reliable contacts.

Mills has managed to combine excellent photography with first rate entertainment and education to deliver a book which covers everything of importance while remaining compact enough to be attractive to all groups of readers. Stephen Mill's Tiger is both wonderful to read and may well prove to be a 'textbook' of tiger conservation in the future.

Great book. Arrived and 24 hours later, I had read it from cover to cover. Totally absorbing. Great photos and a real insight into tiger behaviour. Buy it while you can.

Format: Hardcover
This is a brilliant book illustrated with wonderful photographs. The theories put forward by Steven Mills are very thought provoking and often contrast with popular belief. All in all this is yet another marvelous book from the BBC.

Bad Buy Tiger Book Stephen Mills 26 Aug. 2013
By saga voyages & cruises - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As I ordered a new copy of the Tiger book of Stephen Mills I am really disappointed that the book you send us is
obviously used (Omaha Public Library Sep 2004). The amount of US $ 88.96 is in this case much too high!
Please let us know what to do about this bad buy.

We look forward to your reaction.

This is a must have for any person trying to learn more about tigers and how to save them in this world. I also read tigers in red weather. This is an awesome compliment to that book.
