I've not had the book very long but have already found it extremely useful for an assignment for my degree. I found the personality profiles and behavioural tendencies tables particularly interesting as they provide a nice comparison between the behaviours of many different cetacean species. Well worth buying for anyone with a deep interest in cetaceans, or anyone working in the field.
