As I learned from this book, there are so many aspects to wildlife management that I never even considered. This is a good introduction to the multiple facets of wildlife management, which I now know is not limited to Forest or Park Ranger. Through this book you get an appreciation for the benefits of wildlife and how difficult it can be to manage it so that both wildlife and humans can obtain the maximum benefit.

2.0 out of 5 stars good content, bad writing May 15, 2008
By MK
Format:Paperback
This book has good, useful content, however I found the quality of Bolen's writing to be horrid. There were many run-ons, incomplete sentences, bad syntax and LONG sentences combining sometimes unrelated ideas. I know this isn't a grammar or English book, but his writing style made it difficult for me to read, not to mention understand what he's trying to say. I've read a good deal of textbooks, and many of them were much better written than this one. He also tries to write figuratively at times, and personally when I'm trying to learn, I don't care about figurative speech and just want the raw concept. Additionally, the text was swamped with examples (most of the academic ideas were in the forms of examples) and while examples help remember material, when they come one after another, and never end, it just creates confusion. If Mr. Bolen spent more time editing his material for grammar and comprehension rather than using "pretty" words, this would be a much better text. Otherwise, it was definitely not worth the $100-some it cost.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst Binding I've Ever Seen On A Soft Cover February 10, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is horrendous. The glue is uneven, didn't even get all the pages, and is missing on part of the upper binding completely. I literally have pages falling out on their own because they weren't glued in. For what I paid for it, I expect the book to be made properly. I would send it back if i didn't need it for class. I will be rebinding it myself since I can actually do it correctly. Also contains printer errors where letters are not completely formed or parts of letters are shifted. Was this made in some foreign sweatshop?

The material itself is ok. It isn't as boring as most textbooks but the majority of the content I've read so far is just examples of a briefly discussed main point for each section. I find myself skipping a lot of it because I don't learn anything extra from reading countless examples. I read the important parts and sporadic examples instead.

Hopefully mine was a fluke but if this is how all of the soft covers are bound, I suggest spending extra and getting hardcover or getting it at your school where you can ensure the book is in good condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Older edition, no problem! October 9, 2013
By MLeCour
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I saved so much money by ordering the older edition. It did not have the nice color pictures of the new edition, but the chapters are in the exact order & have all necessary information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Go Wrong February 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Shipping was fast and packaging was awesome. Now unless you are like me you did not look to buy this for home use, you are looking at this for college. However if you are looking at this personal use you can't go wrong trying to learn from this book. It puts everything where it needs to be and it explains everything just as need be. I love it.
