Media reviews

"The introduction and accompanying chapters are a 'must read' for all visitors to these islands. A wonderful boook, and complemented with the superb photographs of Rob Still, this is definitely a great guide to take with you if you ever have the chance to visit the Galápagos Islands. It is also small enough to fit into your back pack along with your essential water, binoculars and camera."
- Scottish Bird News (June 2006)

"Any visitor to the Galápagos would benefit from having a copy of this fine guide"
- British Ornithologists' Union (2006)
