This is a well organised book with all the core, basic information on British mammals, which are organised by taxonomic group with a summary page for each group as well as for each species. It provides a good overview as well as key species information, and the distribution maps are a plus.

It is a very good overview of British mammals (extinct and current) but it is not an identification key! If you need something to identify animals I would recommend a different kind of book but if you just want an overview of the animals, their habitat, life history, this book is very concise.
