The essays and stories assembled in this book are good reading and they contribute new insights into the ecology of a little known and much maligned group of animals. Each of the eleven chapters reveals the exciting as well as the endearing qualities of reptiles and amphibians, taking into account not only how they are in real life but how we perceive them.

Christopher
Of uneven quality. When Gibbons is telling crazy stories, he's hilarious and an all-around blast. When he's starts lecturing or preaching, he's something of a mildly benevolent bore. Still fun, and a good read-aloud if skimming isn't against your religion.
Calvin
Colorful and amusing accounts of field herpetology. Not a dull read by any means. I would recommend it to anyone, whether or not they think they have any interest in herpetology or biology.
Chris
Fantastic Book, I could relate to Dr. Gibbon's field experiences. I recommend it not only to biologists but people with an interest in the outdoors.
