Squirrelology like no other!

An easy read of in-depth, science based information on squirrels all around the world. An excellent reference, though not written or organized like a typical text. Everything, maybe more than you ever wanted to know about the global family of squirrels.

I live in the midst of many squirrels. I wanted to know what they are really up to when they chase through the trees. I finished the book no wiser than when I started. I didn't care about giant African ground squirrels before I read the book and I still don't.

The black-and-white pictures are interesting and they would be even more interesting if they weren't so murky. The color pictures are excellent but do not convey any information about the subjects and have no reference to the text.

Mr. Thorington is obviously a knowledgeable scholar but he did not write a book for the amateur squirrel-peeper and I doubt it is of much use to the serious biologist.
