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?

Well, I hope they do a cheetah book, but considering they took about 25 years to find time to write the hyena book I wouldn't hold your breath!!

Poor US Amazon.com. I ordered and paid for this book last year. They're still looking for a copy to send me. :)

Every once and awhile I get an email saying "This is hard...are you sure you wouldn't rather have a refund?". Nope, I'll wait. 8)

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.

What about a book on the time they spent in Kruger working with Wild Dogs etc?
