From the reviews:

'This book is simply an outstanding read regarding the evolution, ecology, behaviour, health, and conservation of marine mammalsI highly recommend this book to graduate students.'
Douglas P. DeMaster, National Marine Fisheries Service, Seattle, WA
`If you are interested in marine mammals this book will certainly be a very useful addition to your library.'
Helene Marsh, James Cook University, Queensland, Australia
'The book is generally of a high editorial standard. I intend to recommend the book as background reading for my course and to use some chapters as the basis for restructuring some of my lectures. For example, I was particularly impressed by Martin Hall and Greg Donovan's chapter entitled "Environmentalists, fisherman, cetaceans and fish: [ If you are interested in marine mammals this book will certainly be a very useful addition to your library.'
Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, August (2002)

"This text is aimed primarily at advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying marine mammal science. The focus is on evolution, ecology, behavior, and marine mammal health and conservation, with an emphasis on the applied aspects of research. This makes the book valuable for those working on the conversation problems facing marine mammals. ... this book is an excellent resource for marine mammal specialists." (Northeastern Naturalist, Vol. 12 (4), 2005)
