"Features descriptive guides to each of the species, wonderfully adorned by Ellis’s paintings of the males, followed by a broadly based account of the biology of the group as a whole and of the threats these enigmatic creatures currently face."

"Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and general readers."

"This is a nice book for anyone with a strong interest in whales."

"Beaked Whales: a Complete Guide to their Biology and Conservation is an excellent overview of an elusive family of cetaceans that blends two disciplines – natural art and natural history – to achieve ambitious objectives. It is a book for those interested in marine biology at an entry level, yet specialists should purchase a copy to better understand how innovative composition and a creative angle can better communicate contemporary research and species information."

"Not only does it provide a concise overview of beaked whales as a group, it presents clear and easy-to-understand information – in some cases quite possibly even everything known – about each species in this elusive group of marine mammals."

"The book is both a comprehensive guide to beaked whale biology and conservation and an entertaining read that could be of interest to a broad audience regardless of its scientific background."
