It was used as a textbook for my college mammalogy class, and it served the purpose better than any standard text. The authors and editor, top mammalogists, do a good (albeit slightly conservative) job of bringing together what is known about mammalogy and condensing it into one large volume. Each section summarizes one species or group of animals. Special spreads describe details such as the songs of the gibbons and the responses of voles to the scent of their predators. It was very engaging, and I highly recommend it even as a popular science reference.
Biology (BN 357/2)
I checked the 3rd editon, and it seems to me there are lots of update. Almost all the chapter titles have been changed ..
I bought the second edition for my kids from Borders under 10 bucks in the bargain section. My kids like it very much.
The best book about mammals....
If you cann't find a good bargain, buy the latest edition published by Oxford University Press, not this 3-volume second edition. It's way over priced..
