This book was first written in Chinese with the title "Chinese Giant Panda"but is now issued in the UK by The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland to promote cthe arrival of 2 pandas at Edinburgh zoo.
There is everything you will ever want to know about pandas in this book.There are 3 sections a)history b)life style and c)conservation and the future.
The pictures are first class but it is a pity some are spread over one and a half or two pages.
There is a good map plus notes on resources,organisations and further reading.

I chose this as I hope to visit the giant pandas in Edinburgh and wanted to learn more about them, and was pleasantly surprised to learn that the forward in this book was actually written by Iain Valentine the head keeper with the pandas at Edinburgh Zoo, so it was in fact written with Yang Guang and Tian Tian in mind. It is beautifully presented, with amazing photographs and very interesting information. Highly recommended for giant panda lovers.

I Bought this book for my Panda addicted aunt, The Book is absolutely filled with gorgeous photos I will probably get myself my own copy as a wildlife lover and keen amateur photographer.
The book is great to uplift moods in this rather depressing climate and highly recommmended for those that love stunning images plenty of awww's and ahhh's .
Not actually read it myself just leafed through the pages and gushed at the images.
