Very nice book. Gives a great deal on thoughtful information about Madagascar. Although it different from some sources, all sources differ from one another in one way. Love the book.

Horrible book, full of errors and misinformation, and largely plagiarized from Wikipedia and other sources without giving attribution to the correct authors. Garbage like this only increases ignorance instead of teaching anything useful. Shame on you, authors.
