In my opinion this book had great potential. I had thoroughly enjoyed what Bill Bryson had done with the dangerous animals of Australia and although I had not expected Seal to be the same, I had hoped there was a theme that I could follow. From my perspective he did not make me interested in his subject material. I understand he has a fear of snakes, but I did not feel his fear.

One of the reasons I think I had trouble is that he jumped from place to place. The book does not follow one thread (except for snakes) continuously. The story goes from America to Australia to Africa to India and then all over the place again.

I suspect that others might find the travel interesting or like the way Seal tells his story. This just did not appeal to me.
