I have got the first version of this book as well, it was good, but this one is really good.
First of all the book has got a normal size, a lot of these guides are small and are therefore handy to pack but difficult to use. This one has not as it is A4 size.
Photos are generally of good quality and of live animals and give you allready good identification keys.
The drawings besides the text shows you in a blink of an eye what the head of the snakes looks like,venomous or not, and if so how venomous, nocturnal/diurnal,ground or tree dwelling and size.
Text is good as well as the distribution mappes.
