"This latest edition of Walker's continues to fill a crucial niche in documenting global mammalian diversity at the genus level. Its accounts transcend the telegraphic, taxonomic accounts in Mammal Species of the World while abstracting those in the massive nine-volume Handbook of the Mammals of the World."

"If you have other titles in the Walker's Mammals of the World series, you'll want this one!"

"This volume provides highly detailed accounts of the various mammals included... and is well illustrated with color photographs of many of the included mammals."

"The famous Walker's Mammals of the World has been updated... and what an update it is. Rather than the classical two volumes with black-and-white photographs (the last edition is from 1999 and thus almost 20 years old), there is now a single volume with colour photos covering monotremes, marsupials, afrotherians, xenarthrans and sundatherians (ie, Scan-dentia and Dermoptera)."

"Professional naturalists will find [these volumes] invaluable as a handy reference, and amateurs—at least those citizens alive to their earthly environment—should delight in finding so much fascinating information made so available and palatable."

"What an amazing lot mammals are, seen here in all of their diversity!... Walker has made available a mine of information, for the specialist as well as for the casually interested... If you want to find out about a mammal, then, here is the place to look."

"Walker’s Mammals of the World continues its reign as the best single reference for mammalian diversity."

"Every mammalogist must have [these books], and those who profess a broad interest in the fauna of the world will want them."

"The total dedication and scholarship that have gone into this work, capping thirty years of love and labor by E P Walker... and the subsequent equally worthy efforts of R M Nowak, are fully reflected in this beautiful brace of volumes. There should be special prizes for a work such as this."

"For wildlife enthusiasts, this... is an indispensable resource... After being exposed to this kind of thorough, detailed information saturation, many readers may find it hard to go back to a plain old encyclopedia for their animal questions."

"A massive compilation ideal for readers who want to have at their fingertips information on every mammal species."

"For anyone who needs an up-to-date, comprehensive guide to every known species of mammal, Walker's Mammals of the World is an essential purchase."

"An absolute treasure trove—a 'must' for the working naturalist as well as for any person who has curiosity about the world's mammals."
