    1. لم أتوقع أن "الفيل" ذو تأثير سياسي كبير. لم أكن أحب الفيل، ولا أظن أني فجأة أحببته بعد الكتاب، إلا اني اصبحت أشعر بألفة أكبر له. للطافته التي تبدو حقيقية ولمعاناته المريعة التي تذكرني بمعاناة حيتان الأوركا :"(


    2. الكتاب لا يعرض لك التاريخ الطبيعي والأثر الثقافي والسياسي للفيل فحسب، بل إنه يجعلك تشعر باتصال عميق مع هذا الكائن الرائع في الكتاب اقتباسات من أعمال أدبية عديدة أحبها إلي القصيدة من "فيل مقدس": يتعمق إدراك الطفل حين يرى الفيلة القاصية، ويحس بقوتها التي تناهت إليه، قبل أن يتح [...]


    3. الفيل هو أحد الحيوانات الحاضرة في وعي الإنسان بشكل كبيرربما بسبب ضخامته أو خرطومه المميز أو جلده السميك الرمادي أو عيونه الحزينة أو كنزه الذي يسعى خلفه الكثيرون أنيابهكان بودي لو أقيم الكتاب بأربع نجوم، لكن، ورغم أن الكتاب عمل موسوعي، أحسست أن هناك روحا تنقصه وكأن صاحبه هدف [...]


    4. Excellent book. Great way to understand the elephant in its natural state, cultural impact and future. The Reaktion series is a good series to read. They are relatively short books and can be read in a few hours. Elephant leaves you with a sense of unhappiness with the plight of the great animal and how it, among other large fauna, simply get run roughshod by humans.


    5. This is an excellent introduction to elephants and such issues as there biological history, cultural representation, exploitation, and conservation.


    6. .كتاب يتحدث عن حيوان الفيل، تاريخ الطبيعي للفيل تطور الخرطوميات وكذلك اختلاف السلالة بين الأفيال اليوم والسلف المشترك، وتحدث عن الفيل في الفلكلور لشعوب المختلفة، تمثيلاته في ديانات العالم وثقافته، شيء ممتع لما تقرآ "انترودكشن" عن حيوان ما، وخاصة شيء ضخم زي الفيل، السؤال ال [...]


    7. This isn't the most exciting book in the world, but the information is thorough and presented well. It gets a little technical in some parts, but if you're curious about elephants, there are worse things you could do than read this.
