Default Book recommendations?

Hello, I have seen a few reviews on this forum regarding books about caudates, and I was wondering if you all could give me an idea of what the best (or at least most informative) books are that are available to be purchased. I am trying to learn as much as possible, and while this website is one of the best resources, I would love to learn more!
Thanks!

It depends in how much depth you want to go. If you want general, get the book by Indiviglio. If you're really into it, get Petranka. Read the reviews on them so you know what to expect. If you field herp, the Petersen guides are indispensible, though I also love my Audubon books. If you read through the reviews, you'll get an idea of which ones people love, by the comments people make after the reviews, and by the reviews themselves.

Swear by Petranka, I do. Got a few used copies very cheap, so I keep one next to the throne and another on my nightstand.
