Just finished reading this book. It was a very interesting read, and I learned a lot, but I have mixed feelings about it. In my view the author is too biased in favour of hunting. While I do understand the merits of hunting in theory, the reality is sometimes a completely different issue - especially when has been mismanaged as in Tanzania (where most of the discussion in the book centers around). I enjoyed the few chapters about the actual research - I wish there was more about that!
Edit: I wasn't going to include this thought but I will - perhaps one other thing that contributed to my mixed feelings is the negativity portrayed. I mean probably negativity is very realistic in this case - and I usually have no problem with saying it as it is - but man does he paint a bleak picture! The book has almost put me off visiting Tanzania altogether!
Has anyone else read this book yet?
@Game Warden can you please change the title? I made a mistake - it is supposed to be Lions In The Balance. Thank you
