This is an excellent book, as a biologist I could relate to a lot of the experiences shared by the author. I think it touches a lot of what field biologist might go through in their areas, and explain the science behind conservation in a fair and realist way. I recommend this book to anyone interested in field biology and conservation as an academic pursuit or as a curiosity.
