    Yep , sure is , I've just ordered a copy - $33.42 with free delivery. Definitely too good to pass up.
    My Dad's Day pressy to myself.

    Will make a nice addition to my library along with my collection of D.Brown guides.

    My copy arrived in the post today.

    Great field guide to dragons. Great buy , I'd never have bought a copy at full price.

    Are there similar field guide books on skinks of Australia and geckos of Australia ?

    $185 for a book is a too pricey for me.

    I'll wait.

    It wont get cheaper, Harold Cogger books are in high demand. I paid $300 for my first book (5th edition) after years of searching.
    I know of people who have every edition but that is for extremists

    I thought I read that your copy had already arrived.

    Cogger's is a Complete Guide to all Australian Reptiles (including skinks and geckos). It's basically the Bible on Australian Reptiles for serious field workers and cheep at twice the price for the amount of work that has gone into it. You could spend a lot of money (close if not equal to the cost of this book) to purchase a range of field guides by a number of authors to find most of if not all info just duplicated or edited from Hal's work.
