Whether at a zoo, on a camping trip, or under our bedsheets, we are surrounded by animals. While most are perfectly harmless, it's the magnificent exceptions that populate The Book of Deadly Animals. Award-winning writer Gordon Grice takes readers on a tour of the animal kingdom - from grizzly bears to great white sharks, big cats to crocodiles. This audiobook overflows with astonishing facts about Earth's great predators and unforgettable stories of their encounters with humans, all delivered in Grice's signature dark comic style.
"[A] work of mountainous, vertiginous research, a 350-page volume in which scarcely a word is wasted. This review can barely scratch the surface of its wonders." (Daily Mail)
"A wonderful, slightly terrifying, utterly captivating encounter with the animal world - not quite like anything I've ever read before. I think the only way I could possibly have enjoyed this more is if I happened to be an adventurous twelve-year-old boy, but still, even for a fully domesticated 40-year-old woman, it was both a thrill and an education." (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love)
"A fresh, strange, and wonderful new voice in nature writing." (Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma)
