"You have done a unique and powerful thing, bridging passion, science and practical management. Your insightful, well researched and witty book will guide and inspire humans to live in greater harmony with bears."
— Steve Herrero, author of Bear Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidance, and Past President of the International Association for Bear Research and Management (IBA)

"If you live in bear country (and, unless you're an inner-city resident, you probably do), you owe it to bears to read this smart, useful and long-overdue book. Don't let them die because of your or your neighbors' mistakes."
— Ted Williams, Editor-at-Large, Audubon, and Conservation Editor, Fly Rod & Reel

"I have over 350 bear publications in my personal library and I must say that this is one of my favorites. A wonderful, well written book, full of useful information on how to live with bears. I especially liked the tips spread throughout the book by noted bear biologist Tom Beck."
— William R. Cramer, Durango, Colorado
