I doubt I'll be learning French anytime soon. I hope it comes out in English!

YOu think a person could read it if they had, say, two years of French?
By the way, Olaf, how did you order it? It's not available on amazon.de or amazon.fr.

I had 3 years of French in high school and college and I can read most of it, although slowly. You'll quickly pick up some of the description-related words, such as "tache" (spots). Most of the biological words are similar to English or you can figure them out from context, for example "14 sillons costaux" = 14 costal grooves. A lot of scientific words are similar in all languages, and the text is written fairly simply.

The best way to order it from the US is probably to contact Jean Raffaelli directly. I think he gave his email address in one of the posts on this thread.

Thanks, Jen! I did notice it. I thought maybe by now it'd be on amazon, but I reread the thread and see I misunderstood something, that I can order it easily.

Hello,
I ordered my copy from Chimaira, a german online bookshop specialized in herp books. I think Jean mentioned where you can order the book in the USA.
