To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The reason I did not give it 5 stars were as follows: 1. on the bird section, many of the illustrations lacked the distribution range maps of the species. 2. The illustrated map of specie ranges were small and hard to follow the extend of the animal ranges. Other then these, its a great informative book.
Books are added to collections and libraries for learning purposes and knowledge for your children. They are passed down to your children's library for their children and so on......they are kept in the best of condition as possible. But on the other hand, when a book gets fabricated, manufactured, printed and then shipped to customers, you are expected to receive a book that is in brand new condition. In my case, I did not. When received, this item looked like it was purchased at a used book store; except that I paid top dollar for it. I my case: rip-off.
Incredible book, could have significantly more in each section, I felt important and unique additions werent always included but the color pages are gorgeous and information rich. Arrived damaged on top of a spine, being a heavy hardcover book it withstood quite well but will need to be fixed in the future as it has a wide spine and will start splitting further down.
Eu, como amante de animais, comprei esse livro para ampliar meus conhecimentos e é o guia e atlas mais completo que já vi. Gosto muito de enciclopédias, e esse é um exemplar incrível. A editora DK nunca decepciona e a Amazon segue excelente em oferecer produtos de alta qualidade com serviço excepcional.
Espectacular tomo, súper actualizado y con suficiente información básica e interesante con respecto a diversos filos animales. Se enfoca en los vertebrados pero hay suficiente información con respecto a artrópodos, moluscos, equinodermos, etc. Un esencial para cualquier amante de los animales
