"A work of tremendous scope. . . . Amateur naturalists and tourists to the parks of Africa and finally professionals will find this a stimulating, well-documented summary."John F. Eisenberg, Florida Museum of Natural History
"We have seen in the field how very helpful and informative "The Behavior Guide" is. Our knowledgeable safari guides turned often to their prized and already well-thumbed copies, and we continue to refer to ours now that we are back home."Douglas F. Williamson, Jr., National Council, World Wildlife Fund, U.S.
"There was nothing like for the mammals of Africa or anywhere else in the worldand after two decades there still isn t. The Guide provides an invaluable baseline of information that can never be superseded. . . . There are new data and insights, but the Guide retains its place as a landmark in African natural history.."George B. Schaller, author of "The Serengheti Lion" and "The Deer and the Tiger"
"A remarkable review of what is known about the larger African mammals."A.R.E. Sinclair, The Ecology Group, University of British Columbia"

The text and drawings are concise and precise and the reader is rewarded with an array of detail that is delightful . My guides on the safari , who already possessed a bewildering knowledge of the flora and fauna we encountered , found the book to be superb . So much so that I gave my original copy to one of them and had to re-order another for the other guide that I have now dispatched to Kenya . You cannot get higher praise than that !!
I have no hesitation in recommending this book - you will not find a better one !!
