Read full description of the books:
I was a bit unsure about this book as I started out, unsure about the views of the author, though I was definitely looking forward to some armchair travel.
I really came to appreciate it all as I read more. William B. Karesh is a wildlife veterinarian working for the Wildlife Conservation Society (out of the Bronx Zoo in New York) and in this book, he shares his adventures traveling around the world, leading and assisting with projects needing his expertise.
This book is perfect for someone who is thinking about going into this field, to see what real experiences are like. Dr. Karesh is matter-of-fact in the book. He doesn't sugarcoat things and he really tells it like it is. It was refreshing to read. It was also eye-opening, and made me realize that this is not something I could practically do, at least not the way I'm used to living life at this point. Not that I'm at a stage of life that I'd be considering going back to school for a bunch of years to do something completely different than what I do now (nothing remotely animal related, alas). I also never wanted to be a human doctor so I doubt I'd ever want to be an animal doctor.
All that aside, I ended up really enjoying this book. And yes, I did read most of it from my armchair. :)
