This review is from: The Encyclopedia of Mammals (Paperback)
Highly readable, large, paperback guide to all the known mammals in the World containing an absolute wealth of information about the habitats and habits of the 5,000 plus species. It is, quite clearly, a quality product which is beautifully illustrated with fascinating colour photographs, brilliant drawings and helpful maps and the handy factfiles at the beginning of each entry provide relevant thumbnail snapshots of the various species. These brief factfiles also have lovely little maps indicating where the mammals can be found on the planet and give a comparison of the size of the mammal to humans. Although the entries are compiled by numerous experts, they are well laid out, clearly written and will be easily understood by the general reader. An appendix at the back of the book provides an excellent species list and there is an extensive bibliography to boot. In addition there is a glossary of terms which will prove helpful to the average reader and a thorough, alphabetical index to help you easily locate whatever interests you in the encyclopedia.

This is, most definitely, a must buy for anyone interested in mammals and I have to say that I am absolutely delighted with it.

This is an excellent comprehensive and readable reference book. It is full of ,'Well I didn't know that'. If you are interested in mammals this is the book and great for wildlife photographers which is why I bought it.
