...a work of exceptional usefulness. This book is a must for all who are engaged in research on the Pleistocene, and is certainly among the most important books in vertebrate paleontology of the past decade.
Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology
The volume, with its few figures, ample literature and excellently usable indices for localities and systematics, has already achieved its aim: It is easier to use and cite a manual than to look up several hardly available studies.

...a highly useful book for current consultation and should be present in all specialised libraries.
