This is more than a field guide. Yes , excellent pictures are here as well as ecological data, distinguishing field marks to aid proper classification, and behavior information. That is just the beginning. Venom characteristics are detailed with great care. Nowhere else that we know of in a field guide are bite symptoms described, discussed, categorized and cataloged as a percent of actual bite victims. And speaking of victims, Andrew Price's description of not to do stupid things (getting bit) is followed by comprehensive and up to date do's and don'ts for field treatment of bites. The glossary is extensive and easily understood. And, scholarly references are comprehensive. This book is a hardened herpetologists friend and an amateurs learning companion.

Consider it a very good reference for identifying snake sun bathing on your porch or snoozing curled up in your hiking boot.

This is a good book for those wanting a mini-biology lesson about venomous snakes. The book is well-written and easy to read, and for a small field guide there is quite a bit of information packed into each section. It's a good book for those who just want a basic summary of each type of venomous snake.

Each venomous snake is given a detailed physical description (including anatomy diagrams) and descriptions of habitat (including geographical maps), behavior, reproduction, prey/predators, and venom characteristics. There is also a color photo of each snake.

The book also states that the author's goal is to reduce the incidence of snakebite. To that end, the book includes helpful information about understanding where snakes live, how to avoid and protect against snakebites, recognizing venomous snakes, and first aid (what to do if bitten).
