"Outstanding first-of-its-kind and one-of-a-kind three-volume reference source…a marvel and a model of compilation to which most other reference source can only aspire…On a scale of 1 to 10, Encyclopedia of the World's Zoos is an undisputed 10…Highly recommended without reservation for all library reference collections in all types of libraries." -- E-Streams

"A most useful compendium…" -- Times Literary Supplement

"The first major reference work that is more than a dictionary of zoological parks…With so few reference resources about the world of zoos, libraries will welcome this wonderful and unique title. Highly recommended." -- Library Journal (starred Review)

"Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries." -- Choice

"The only general encyclopedia of zoos available… This book does an excellent job covering the many aspects of zoos. The range and quality of the contributors and advisors is impressive, and the articles are well written." -- American Reference Books Annual
