      This was fun to flip through, because it can be tough to find books about extinct animals other than dinosaurs. But apart from the focus of its subject and well-designed layout, it's disappointing.The entries themselves are badly written. There are lots of short, declarative sentences piled up on each other, which come across as boring and monotonous. And when the author does indulge in different types of sentences, they're sometimes awkward or unclear.I was also annoyed by the book's tone and s [...]

      Great book for understanding how humans have devastated the earth and forced so many interesting animals into extinction. My disgust for humans has grown immensely from reading this book, and my love for animals has as well. If you want a basic understanding of this subject and want greater pessimism for humanity, I can recommend this book to anyone willing to sacrifice their love for their fellow man. 5 stars!

      A fantastic book, pretty much exactly as you would hope, with some great illustrations and most importantly, pointers as to where to go next for further information on various fauna.

      Beautiful illustrations.Terrible, terrible writing. The scientific aspect of it just totally vanishes sometimes It almost makes you cry.Also, it is too incomplete to deserve the word "encyclopedia" on that enormous title.
