Though there are many photo guides to mammals in Asia, this one is noticeably better than all the others for several reasons.

1, Photos are large, well-chosen and generally of a high-quality, including some stunning images. Obviously, as several mammals (particularly in south-east Asia) are either nocturnal, rare of very, very shy due to hunting pressures, some pictures are from captivity, but the authors should be applauded for sourcing predominantly wild photos, and getting some captive shots looking wild!

2, Text is short, simple but precise, as the authors are very experienced in this region the texts reads as knowledgeable and informative. Identification is kept simple, for novices through to seasoned mammal-watchers.

3, Layout is nice, simple and attractive. A minor criticism is that a couple of photos are oddly positioned and small (Moon Rat is an obvious example), but on the whole, fantastic.

Given the modest price I would highly recommend this to anyone with any interest in wildlife, particularly as it is pocket-sized and easy to carry around.

There is nothing wrong with this book - but it will not suit my purposes as it only covers a small selection of the mammals of the region. As I'm going to a specific couple of areas, I ought to have invested in a more comprehensive field guide that would show me everything I'm likely to see there. My fault, I was probably trying to save money ... I'll learn next time!

Excellent write up and beautiful sharp pictures, a must have for anyone into Mammals of South-East Asia. Great for own use or as gift.

Nice book, not sure if it covers enough Mammals though?

Some amazing creatures in here. Minimal facts, but just what you need if you are thinking of doing some traveling over there I'd say!
