  1. This is sure to be an outstanding series, just as has been their ongoing publication of the Handbook of the Birds of the World. Sadly, no review copies seem to be available and I can’t presently afford the retail purchase price.

  2. This is without any doubt the best book on carnivores that has ever been published. Beautyfully illustrated, written by experts and still very easy to read. Very much worth waiting for. I can hardly wait for the next volumes.
    These books will a true treasure of every mammallover and should be available in each good library and good bookshop.
    Very highly recommended.
    I only cannot understand why the call it a “handbook”.
