This seems to be the book I dip into most often to find out a bit more about a certain mammal. Some of the entries are quite detailed, clearly well researched, with good photographs. Obviously they can't detail every species so there are gaps in the depth of coverage in terms of individual species within a genus or family. Generally it has enough information to satisfy my curiosity.
