Nicely written, excellent illustrations and a good book.
I like the general layout of the book, it's easy to navigate to something specific or you can even open it to a rough position and from there know whether to flick forward or back to find what you want - it should be quick/easy to use in whale-spotting-panic!
From a physical point of view, it's a handy size of book (A5-ish) and the cover is a tough wearing plastic. So, carrying it around with you will neither do it any harm nor will you be over encumbured by it's weight.
If you live near a coast and want an idea of what's out there or are specifically going in search of sea mammals - I would happily recommend you add this book to your basket now or at least pop it on a wishlist!
The fact that these memories are still quite sharp in my memory after several decades tells me something of the fascination that such marine mammals have for me, and probably for you.
The fact that I was guessing as to the identity of what I had seen tells me that there are plenty of us who have been waiting for this book - which I think is an excellent one.
This is not just a field guide - though it is a very good guide to cetaceans and seals in the field - but this book tells you about where to go, when to go and quite a lot about the ecology and conservation of the species that you might see.
I now know what the following words mean: lobbing, chorus lining and bottling.
Seals are fun, but cetaceans are a treat. Seals sit on the shore looking like bananas but cetaceans swim past and always seem, to me at least, wild and wonderful. I'm looking forward to spending more time gazing out to sea with this book close at hand. Now I'll have a much better chance of knowing what I'm looking at.
