Our goal: Build the most accurate list of best Zoology books.

How we picked these:
1. Search for "best Zoology books" and study the top 5 articles.
2. Add only the top books (mentioned 2+ times).
3. Rank the results neatly for you here! 😊
(This process takes a long time, but we do the research so you don't have to!)

FAQ

  • How did you create this zoology book list?

    We wrote more about our process at the top of the page, but basically we look for the best zoologist lists posted (because they're the most knowledgeable) and average the responses they report.

  • How many book lists did you research to create this zoologists list?

    We looked at 5 zoological lists in total. We focus on the 5 most popular ones only because anything more than that began to dillute the quality of every book on our list.

  • Is studying zoology hard?

    This is a difficult question to answer. It depends on a number of factors, including the student's natural ability and willingness to learn (even which book they pick!). Some people find it more or less easy, while others find it quite challenging. However, like all things in life and the world it can be said that studying zoology requires hard work and dedication (and we hope each book on our list helps!)

  • Why can't I save any of these books to a shopping cart?

    Long ago when we started this book site, our number one rule was what we call "don't try to out-Bezos Bezos". This is why we don't have any of the features you can already find on Amazon (one click buy button, future book reading lists, comments or wherever you read Amazon reviews, etc...). Instead, we only focus on what we're best at, which is bringing you (and everyone from children to adults!) the most awesome book recommendations possible :) And if there's anything we can do to improve that experience for you/ make your life easier, please let us know!
