… Mike Potts writes in an easy-going, accessible style which is a pleasure to read. … I enjoyed this book on several levels not least because at the time of reading, the country was in the grip of Covid-19 lockdown and the next best thing to getting out into the natural world is reading about it.  … I found myself smiling at the constant realisation that I remembered watching the programmes and particular scenes described within the book. One of the more famous moments for me was Sir David Attenborough up a tree with a bird of paradise in the background. … This would be a good book to pass to anyone aspiring to work in the natural world. … If you are interested in knowing more about how natural history films are made, then this would be a great introduction; similarly, if you like reading travel and wildlife books, then this holds plenty of variety… ECOS

… Whether you’re a hard-core mammal nerd or just enjoy watching meerkat shows on TV, this is a great little volume to learn more about these fascinating creatures. … I especially appreciated the detailed information on all things mongoose: from mongooses in human culture to mongooses as invasive species. … This book provides detailed information and is a great addition to my collection of mammal references. The Nature Conservancy
