Bit of extra info for non SA residents: a flat rate of R150 for normal shipping on all overseas purchases for one copy. Preferred method of payment is credit card otherwise wire transfer will suffice. Customers should ensure they pay the amount inclusive of bank charges if paying by wire transfer.

It is a good book. It gives real insight in to both brown and spotted hyena behavior, as well as the life of a scientist in KTP.

Worth a read! :thumbs_up:

Finished this one last week. Amazing and I couldn't recommend it more. Amazing behhavioural anaysis of hyenas and margie's descriptions of life in ktp in the 1970s are just awesome!

You can get this at almost any big bookshop in sa now.

I read this book in two great big gulps and loved it. Full of insights into the behaviour of these fascinating and intelligent creatures as well as into what it's really like to live as researchers in the back of beyond. For a full review, see my blog (below) - just click on the "books" tab.

Can only agree with what everyone else has said. Great book and I now have great respect for the hyena both brown and spotted. I have a feeling if us humans operated like the hyena there would be fewer problems in the world!

Was up past midnight finishing this book last night. An absolutely fascinating and engrossing read, I enjoyed it tremendously. Just so easy for the non-scientific nature lover to understand.

<Tentative question> Do you think they'll do a similar book for the cheetah project they are working on now?

Why not copy this response from amazon to Jaana, the publisher, whose sales team's email is sales@jacana.co.za. Amazon has to source it from them so only they can sort out the problem.
