"A refreshing take on the relationships between humans and cougars, written by one of the foremost cougar experts in North America.... The Cougar Conundrum is a must-read for anyone in the carnivore or ungulate realm or anyone who has a sincere interest in human-wildlife coexistence."-- "Journal of Wildlife Management"

"The Cougar Conundrum belongs in any nature collection strong in conservation and animal protection, discussing the rise of mountain lions in human areas and why they should be considered a positive force.... The result is a powerful survey especially recommended for those who live in areas where cougars are making a comeback."

-- "Donovan's Bookshelf"
"The Cougar Conundrum is a deep dive into the most widely distributed and successful large carnivore in the western hemisphere. This book will help you consider the place of big predators and people on the planet and how to create a new era of reasonable coexistence, including restoration of cougars into a substantial fraction of their former range."--Paul Beier, Regents' Professor of Conservation Biology, Northern Arizona University
"The mountain lion deserves more champions like Mark Elbroch. In The Cougar Conundrum, the biologist Elbroch debunks the pernicious myths fueling the persecution of North America's iconic big cat. But the optimist Elbroch offers a more compelling vision of coexistence with one of nature's most wondrous creations."--Will Stolzenburg, author of Heart of a Lion
