While there are perhaps not many books that can come close to the quality of the San Diego Zoo Centenary double volume, and while Anthony Sheridan's latest is definitely worth buying (although as usual his statistics and charts exhibit many flaws)...here are 7 others that have scarcely been mentioned on ZooChat. Book #1: Elephants and Egotists: In Search of Samorn of the Adelaide Zoo Elephants and Egotists : Patricia Sumerling : 9781743053997 I already posted a very short review under a different thread and I'd recommend this book. Book #2: Through the Lion Gate: A History of the Berlin Zoo https://www.amazon.ca/Through-Lion-...TF8&qid=1478544752&sr=1-3&keywords=berlin+zoo This book will be published next August and while it is a long wait I'm sure that many zoo enthusiasts will be ready to read about Berlin Zoo...although 300 pages seems as if it would scarcely do the zoo justice! We'll have to wait and see what the book looks like but at least there is now a cover photo of a caged tiger on the link above. Book #3: The Zoo: The Wild and Wonderful Tale of the Founding of London Zoo The Zoo : Isobel Charman : 9780241240687 I've already ordered this one and it was only just published a few days ago. I'm looking forward to yet another book on London Zoo. Book #4: My Life in the Cleveland Zoo: A Memoir https://www.amazon.ca/My-Life-Cleve...&qid=1478545024&sr=1-1&keywords=cleveland+zoo At more than 400 pages (with zero photos) it is a rather entertaining read and tells the perspective from a man who was first a tour train driver, then a night watchman, and finally a keeper. The book is well worth purchasing and neatly divided into three sections to represent the three different jobs that the writer held at the Cleveland Zoo over many years. Book #5: The Animal Game: Searching for Wildness at the American Zoo https://www.amazon.com/Animal-Game-...8&qid=1478545232&sr=1-31&keywords=zoo+history This book was just published this week. Book #6: American Zoo: A Sociological Safari https://www.amazon.ca/American-Zoo-...8&qid=1478546870&sr=1-11&keywords=zoo+history This book was reviewed in Zoo Grapevine magazine and I found it an intriguing read as the writer volunteered at two different Philadelphia-area zoos and provides several different perspectives on zoological institutions. From disgruntled employees to happy volunteers, from behind-the-scenes happenings at Elmwood Park Zoo to looking at zoos with a larger lens...a mixed-bag but an interesting collection of ideas for the reader to consider. Book #7: The Zoo and Screen Media: Images of Exhibition and Encounter https://www.amazon.ca/Zoo-Screen-Me...8&qid=1478547106&sr=1-20&keywords=zoo+history The ONLY book on this list that I won't purchase...it is out of my price range for something that is only 290 pages.
