The book packed with a wealth of information. Its a really great book for getting to know African mammals and i would highly recommend it for anyone wanting more info than the standard ID book.
However, it was purchased with a second book from the same company and I was disappointed to be charged two delivery charges (and fairly expensive for a book). This was explained because the books could come from different locations. The two books were delivered together in one package from the same location and with a postage that was significantly lower than even one of the postage fees I paid for....very disappointing and I would think again about using the company.
I have been looking for a book on African mammals which would give me more information than the normal guide book. Something which would explain more about their habits and behaviour etc. This seems to fit the bill exactly without becoming too scientific.
Im doing a Animal Managment course in zoo animals and this book provided very useful when doing an assignment on the behaviour of some of the animals in my care. This guide provides not just information for people working with these African species but also anyone with an intrest of how they behave in the wild. Definatly a must have if taking part in a zoology degree or animal management course.
