I have been fortunate enough to see dolphins a few times, but have not yet seen a whale. Should I ever be lucky enough to do so then I am going to need this book with me. They are not the easiest animals to spot. This new authoritative and up-to-date guide by Mark Carwardine and a significant number of whale experts and biologists around the world have packed it with detailed colour illustrations and helpful identification tips.

For a field guide, it is utterly beautiful to look at, almost too good to take on a boat where it will probably get wet! That said, you really need to have this with you if you have the opportunity to go whale watching. The information is clear and concise, and they have picked details that may help you identify the glimpses that you are most likely to get in the oceans. I thought it was a top-notch guidebook.
