The North American Bear Center reviews books about bears. Here's what they have to say about their site:
"We looked at a lot of bear books to help steer people to the ones with the most accurate information. We rejected books that presented myths as fact and that were overly speculative about causes of bear behavior. This meant rejecting some beautiful books that were obviously authored by non-experts who did limited homework. A few authors and publishers truly did their homework."
