SWARA (April-June 2006) "For anyone with a general interest in wildlife, a comprehensible, portable, and fairly comprehensive field guide is a must. This pocket guide fulfils these criteria." Scottish Bird News (September 2006)

It's a very compact book and deals (inevitably) with only a fraction of the species you may encounter but, as a straightforward field guide it is brief and clear without dumbing down the information it presents. A more academic guide might use drawings rather than photos but the pictures in this generally give a good impression of the animals in their typical environment.

One small quibble is that it shows some inconsistency in its quantifying of the venom threat in the snakes. It is not always clear whether a snake is not venomous at all or merely not particularly harmful. As far as I can tell, all those that are seriously dangerous are clearly indicated, though.

There are few books available on the reptiles of East Africa, and even fewer on the amphibians. This one manages to combine both and includes probably all the species that a visitor to the region could hope to encounter, plus a lot more beside. The reptile part of the book is a condensed version of the lead author's earlier hardback book on the subject, but even with amphibians included is small and light enough to be carried on safari.
