Product description


"Reaktion's series of  'Animal' books . . . is forming a large and fascinating library of arcane knowledge about various species' physiology and, more, about the cultural significance they've accrued since humans first joined them on this planet, 15,000 odd years ago. Skipping from the Sumerians to The Simpsons, Stutesman demonstrates what we've also most venerated and feared about snakes."
(The Independent on Sunday 2005-11-01)

"A lively and lovely series. . . . This delightful series gives us animals as both alien and familiar. . . . An exhilarating, often astonishing and sometimes moving series of monographs."
(Martin Levin Globe and Mail 2006-05-04)

"A cornucopia of facts both trivial and important. . . . It is genuinely interesting."
(Bruce Elder Sydney Morning Herald 2006-02-25)

"The illustrations are superb. . . . Books like this prompt you to collect your favourite facts as you read."
(Tim Dee Times Literary Supplement 2006-07-28)
