"H. C. Bernhard Grzimek hoped his original encyclopedia would disseminate knowledge of the animals and love for them. This is also a goal of the revised edition; it does not disappoint. Authoritative writing in a style accessible to the general reader, comprehensive coverage, a taxonomic arrangement to facilitate comparison between species, consistent organization, ample color illustrations and photographs, incorporation of current research, and the inclusion of conservation status and the significance of the animal to humans make Grzimek's an excellent choice for academic, large public, and special libraries."
