Media reviews

"There are many titles currently available that claim to cover all the birds of the globe: treat these as nothing more than inferior effigies and go out and buy the real thing."
- Hugh Harrop, Birding World

"If perfection does not exist upon Earth, this volume comes very close to it."
- Paul Geroudet, Nos Oiseaux
