When I reviewed (Spawls 2002), I remarked that this beautiful book was "hardly a pocket field guide" (Broadley 2002). The same authors have responded by producing this admirably compact (19 X 12.5 X 1.5 cm) pocket guide covering Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, which also includes the amphibians. It is profusely illustrated with excellent colour photographs. Many of the pictures used to illustrate the reptiles were used in the original book, but 40 are new, while Bob Drewes has contributed 105 beautiful photos to illustrate the amphibians.
